HereNowHear Tuesday, March 24th 7:30 p.m. PNC Hall, Duquesne University co-presented by Duquesne University and Music on the Edge Piano duo HereNowHear presents Stockhausen's epic piano duo Mantra alongside a new work by Notre Dame composer John Liberatore. Duo partners Andrew Zhou and Ryan MacEvoy McCullough have performed at venues ranging from the Los Angeles Philharmonic to the Lucerne Festival, the Tanglewood Music Center to the Aspen Music Festival. The two team up with partners from Duquesne, the University of Pittsburgh, and Alia Musica to offer one of the most challenging works of the twentieth century along with Liberatore's new piece Sedgeflowers, a prestigious commission from Harvard's Fromm Foundation.
I feel that it could be useful to have a discussion-forum on the music of Stockhausen. There are so many people from all over the world, young and old, learned and eager to get into contact with this musical world: musicologists, composers, musicians, music lovers; people who plan concerts - who write books or have to give lectures and so on. So there should be much stuff, many ideas that we can share. And when we have open questions, there may be people who studied just that and could give a hint or a stimulus.
A problem might be the English language, but i feel that is the only possibility that many people who are interested can participate. And we can exercise tolerance to mistakes!
