The Disklavier is the player piano of the digital age – a Yamaha grand fitted with the latest technology. This concert brings together works written especially for this instrument, with and without pianist. Pianist Mark Gasser brings the human touch to works including French spectral composer Jean-Claude Risset’s 8 Sketches and Austrian interactive music pioneer Karlheinz Essl’s landmarkLexicon Sonata. Performances of new works by WAAPA composers Cat Hope and Lindsay Vickery will feature, as well as the controversially titled multi-piano work, Evil Nigger, by African‑American composer Julius Eastman.
