Event Description

International Steinway Artist James D'Leon returns to Chatter Cabaret with his popular "Conversations from the Piano" approach. Audiences will be treated to a performance of Liszt's Ballade No. 2, which is the first work on the composer's road to spiritual redemption.  This will be followed by a pairing of southern-themed works, Stephen Montague's Southern Lament and Frederic Rzewski's Cotton Mill Blues, which will feature D'Leon strumming the piano strings, singing, and applying other special effects that mimic everything from a locomotive to a cotton mill factory. 

 

The program continues with a beautiful pairing of “ Peace Piece” by Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett's arrangement of” Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, which both represent haunting and emotional solo jazz works inspired by classical music.The concert closes with Alberto Ginastera's exciting” Danzas Argentinas”. Each work on the program will be preceded by a brief explanation from the performer regarding historical background, musical structure, and performing techniques.

 

Born in South Korea into a musical family, D'León was awarded top honors as a graduate from Temple University's Esther Boyer College of Music in Philadelphia. He was awarded a fellowship to the Eastman School of Music, New York, from which received a doctorate of musical arts. From there, D'León competed and won praise in many international piano competitions and received top honors in the New York Artist International Competition that led to his New York debut recital at Carnegie Hall, and the Gold Medal at the New Orleans International Piano Competition, which helped launch his performance career.

Admission is $25, with food and drinks available separately. Tickets and information at chatterabq.org.
