Events | MicroFest at Villa Aurora "I (tune) NY"

Los Angeles | June 15, 2013 | 8:00 PM

Now in its seventeenth year of celebrating the beauty that lies “between the note”,  MicroFest is the worldʼs leading concert series devoted to the glorious universe of non-standard tunings. Founded by microtonal guitarist and radio personality John Schneider in 1997, MicroFest has grown to a festival of multiple events at Southern California venues ranging from Pacific Palisades to Claremont; Pasadena to Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA.

In 1931 New York, Basque composer/pianist Emiliana Zubeldia met the Mexican theorist Augusto Novaro and popularized his revolutionary tuning system for pianos. Aron Kallay resurrects this fascinating sound and the new perspective it gives to piano music from that era, including works of Toch*, Copland, Gershwin, and Zubeldia herself.

* The grand piano at Villa Aurora is on permanent loan from the Toch Society.
