Faculty Tuesdays continue from an empty Grusin Hall, SharpsandFlatirons.com, 10/22/20

“Pianist David Korevaar is excited for his upcoming Faculty Tuesdays livestream. He will perform on the Oct. 27 concert, ‘Signs, Games + Messages,’ which will feature works by Karol Szymanowski, György Kurtág and Fauré.

‘(In chamber music,) we do a lot with eyes, with body motions, with the sense of breathing, which doesn’t mean we have to see the breathing apparatus,’ Korevaar says. ‘It’s a whole-body thing.’

This will be Korevaar’s third livestream this fall, after a solo livestream and a duo livestream with violinist Charles Wetherbee in mid-October.

‘It’s a new adventure,’ Korevaar says. ‘In a livestream, you don’t have the opportunity to fix stuff, but you get the same self-consciousness about the bloopers. With chamber music, it’s easier because there is mutual energy, and everybody is working together.'”  |  full article
