Piano Outliers on Between the Keys, July 16

The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler has a fascination for the piano world’s outliers.

“The piano world is full of performers and composers who reside outside of the proverbial box,” says Distler, “who hold on to the courage of their convictions with impressive tenacity, oblivious to the status quo and the conventions of their times.”

Featured composers and pianists on this week’s episode of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys include iconic outliers such as Denman Maroney, Conlon Nancarrow, Maria Yudina, Thelonious Monk, Don Shirley, Percy Graingers, Ervin Nyiregyhazi, Tsegué-Maryam Guébrou and Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji.

Join Jed Distler for Episode No. 212 of Between the Keys, this Tuesday July 16th at 10:00 PM, exclusively on the Classical Network and WWFM.Org. Between the Keys is proudly sponsored by Jacobs Music Company.
