Chai Variations on Eliahu HaNavi: Backstory & Digital Premiere with Judith Shatin & pianist Nathan Carterette

08/29/2021 @ 7:30 pm

To join us for this special premiere, log onto YouTube here. Extraordinary pianist Nathan Carterette joined me to discuss the piece. As the composer, I found his thoughts captivating. He referenced both the Biblical Elijah as well as the challenge of deciding on the ordering of the 18 variations. There is a lot of back and forth as we delve into the background of the piece, its meaning to each of us, and my decision to empower the performer to participate directly in the composition”s shape. You can order Poets of the Piano: Acts of Faith here. And you can find out more about the piece and order it here.
