Herbert Schuch, piano

One of the rising stars of his generation, Romanian pianist Herbert Schuch curates his programs with the utmost thought; his D.C. debut program is based on the sound of bells. "Two things about them stimulate my imagination," says Schuch. "The wonderful richness of the partials in large bells, and the chaotic-seeming rhythmic interference of a confused peal of bells, which generates constantly changing structures and patterns in the listener's brain." The program will include selections by Murail, Liszt, Bach/Busoni, Messiaen, Bach/Bauer, and Ravel.

Performance Timing: Part One - 36 min.; Intermission - 18 min.; Part Two - 37 min.

 Note: The artist will sign CDs following the performance, in the States Gallery outside of the Terrace Theater.
