From Hammered! at Q2: “Drone “
Week Two: Pianist, pedagogue and new music guru Bruce Brubaker takes the curatorial reins for June
Monday, June 13, 2011
Few pianists have proven themselves to be more programmatically inventive and musically provocative than this month’s Hammered! pianist-in-residence, Bruce Brubaker. Open your ears all June for a month’s worth of programs specially curated for Q2 by one of today’s most intriguing contemporary artists.
In each of Brubaker’s four week-long programs, the distinguished concert pianist, New England Conservatory faculty member and new music Jedi examines a series of endlessly fascinating themes and offers 1,200 minutes of music that is almost entirely new to Q2.
Each week will include a hosted Monday show and program note from Brubaker, and we’ll also offer exclusive music videos recorded live by Brubaker of works by Philip Glass and John Cage.
Tune in all month for what promises to be an illuminating, sometimes quirky and altogether fascinating dive into the curatorial mind of Bruce Brubaker.
