GRAMMY®-winning pianist Nadia Shpachenko performs selections from her recently awarded album
The Poetry of Places.
This program will feature works by Chapman faculty member Vera Ivanova, Amy Beth Kirsten, Hannah Lash, James Matheson, Harold Meltzer, Lewis Spratlan, and Jack Van Zandt, in a fascinating mélange inspired by great architecture, poetry, and places. The compositions are based on diverse buildings, including Louis Kahn’s National Assembly Buildings in Dhaka, Bangladesh, American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Frank Gehry’s IAC Building in Manhattan, Aaron Copland’s House, and Newgrange Ancient Temple in Ireland, among others, as well as poetry by Hermann Hesse and Boris Pasternak, contemplating upon human existence and its reflection in nature. The concert will also feature the Southern California premiere of "3 Reveries after Beethoven" by Paul Chihara, celebrating Beethoven's 250th birthday.
