Faculty Recital Series featuring David Macbride
This solo recital is titled “Sonatas and Interludes: Keyboard Music by John Cage, Domenico Scarlatti, and David Macbride (after Cage and Scarlatti),” performed by David Macbride, harpsichord, piano, and prepared piano. The recital will illuminate connections and contrasts between the Baroque master of the sonata form in keyboard composition and one of most influential artists of the 20th century, whose works for prepared piano (his invention) are the seminal contribution to that literature, and whose Sonatas and Interludes are considered to be his major work in this medium. As a composer/pianist, Macbride’s own music on the program will serve as a commentary on both composers, furthering their ‘conversation’ over time, sonic, cultural, and aesthetic space.
