Los Angeles | September 15, 2018 | 8:00 PM

To acknowledge the centenary of Claude Debussy’s death – pianist Mark Robson performs Debussy's 12 Études, with responses by 12 composers: Juhi Bansal, Daniel Rothman, Sarah Gibson, Karl Kohn, Bruno Loucharon, Vera Ivanova, Thomas Kotcheff, Anne LeBaron, Robert Gates, Vicki Ray, Nick Norton and Mark Robson.

Thanks to the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles for their friendly support.

Piano Spheres supports and encourages the composition and performance of major new works for the piano. It enlarges the piano repertoire by commissioning new works and sustaining a concert series that focuses primarily on works by contemporary composers. Piano Spheres was founded in 1994 by pianist Leonard Stein to present the best of contemporary piano music as well as rarely heard treasures from centuries past.

Eclectic Salon, in the historic surroundings of Villa Aurora, celebrates the diversity of the musical landscape of Los Angeles and is produced in collaboration with a variety of ensembles, some of which have been founded during the last decade, when L.A. became a true hub for new music.

Mark Robson has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a pianist with “one of the great techniques,” “an inquiring mind” and a performer capable of evoking an “exquisite engulfing pastel haze,” and he continues to impress with his multi-faceted career as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher. Mr. Robson is equally comfortable in styles ranging from early music played on the harpsichord and organ to the great Romantic repertoire and beyond to contemporary piano works demanding theatrical participation from the performer. As a collaborative artist with singers and instrumentalists, he commands the respect of his peers in both the recital and chamber settings.
