Sitting in front of a nine foot concert grand piano...is like sitting at the wheel of an expensive luxury sedan.
Ahhh, the smell of fine materials.
The sheen of black lacquer.
The quality of a finely designed machine.
The leather piano bench?...the leather seat.
The ivory keys?...the polished steering wheel.
The view out the window?...infinite driving possibility.
The view over the strings?...an infinite road to pure musical imagination.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we put ourselves in the gentle hands of musicians who drive the piano into contemplative soundscapes, on a program called PIANISSIMO. Music is by STARR PARODI, DANA CUNNINGHAM, VICTOR SPIEGEL, MICHAEL HARRISON, ROBERT BRUCE, RICK COX, MICHAEL HOPPÉ, and GARY MALKIN.
