this Friday at 7pm, join me at Bargemusic for a concert of music by my dad, composer Alexander Zhurbin!
In my composing work, I feel incredibly fortunate to have had most of the pieces I’ve composed performed at least once. This is a post about the opposite — pieces I’ve composed that haven’t (yet) been performed. A playlist of score videos awaits.
Sometime ago as a student at Juilliard, I wrote extra variations on the “Trout” theme as an encore — hear them now performed beautifully in Vienna’s Musikverein!
I’m very grateful to Mark Peskanov and Bargemusic for hosting my music on three nights next week, as part of their “Here and Now Winter Festival”. This is truly a wonderful honor.
sharing with you a little solo piano piece I wrote in memoriam of a relative, please enjoy “For Lily Bea”, beautifully performed by Karolina Rojahn.
This image looks like two musicians on a Zoom call, but with a twist — we can play at the same time and actually hear each other! How is this possible? The answer, as the modern parlance goes, may surprise you —-> we’re also connected on Skype! Allow me to explain —
What’s another waltz among friends? This one very much indebted to a style of my father, composer Alexander Zhurbin — possibly the only moment of me playing piano on all of the internet! Enjoy!
