Clavier à Couleurs: An Exhibit of Piano Preludes 8:00 PM8:00 PM - Bratton Recital Hall: Arlene Kies Piano Recital and Master Class Series Clavier à Couleurs:An Exhibit of Piano Preludes Toronto-based musicians Gregory Millar and Lisa Raposa (Millar Piano Duo) and artist Antonietta Kies come together in an original show of music and images. Inspired by Scriabin's late-Romantic oeuvre (op. 11) and a familial sense of connection to music for the piano, Kies exhibits brand-new "poetics" in oil on canvas. On-screen projections of this evocative collection of landscapes and symbols are played along with the music, rendered live by Raposa. The event comes full-circle with Millar in a performance of the Twenty-four Preludes, op. 28 by Chopin. Part art exhibition, part concert: allow yourself to partake in this synesthetic experience of sound transformed by light.

Arlene Kies Piano Recital and Master Class Series: Richard Masters 8:00 PM

Arlene Kies Piano Recital and Master Class Series: Richard Masters 8:00 PM8:00 PM - Bratton Recital Hall: The Arlene Kies Piano Recital and Master Class Series welcomes pianist Richard Masters Wednesday, Apr. 1, 2020 at 8:00 pm in Johnson Theatre of the Paul Creative Arts Center.Richard Masters is a soloist, opera coach, chamber musician and orchestral pianist based in Blacksburg, VA, where he is an assistant professor of piano and collaborative piano on the music faculty at Virginia Tech's School of Performing Arts. Significant collaborations include concerts with Grammy-winning baritone Donnie Ray Albert, flutist and composer Valerie Coleman, Colombian mezzo-soprano Marta Senn, and the late Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Barbara Conrad. He has appeared with former Boston Symphony principal trombonist Norman Bolter, former Juilliard String Quartet violinist Earl Carlyss, saxophonist Harvey Pittel, and under the baton of the late Lorin Maazel. Masters has performed solo, chamber and vocal recitals throughout the U.S. and in Europe. As a solo pianist, Masters plays a wide variety of standard and non-traditional repertoire, including contemporary pieces written for or commissioned by him. A strong proponent of contemporary American composers, he has performed world premieres of pieces by Valerie Coleman, Kenneth Frazelle, Jon Jeffrey Grier, David Conte, and many others. He is also an enthusiastic performer of British music from the early 20th century, focusing in particular on the solo piano music of John Ireland. The critic John France wrote on MusicWeb International "Richard Masters approaches [John Ireland's Piano Sonata] with great style and understanding: all the facets of Ireland’s art are present here: ‘…the lyrical, the dramatic, the extrovert and the melancholy – the intense self-questioning and the open, almost naïve, avowals.’" Masters’s recording of music by Australian composer Percy Grainger and his British contemporaries is available on Heritage Records. Masters recently appeared on the National Flute Association's keynote concert in "Wish," a work for flute and piano commissioned by Masters from Valerie Coleman. Other recent appearances include performances at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's "Music at the Gardner" series, the San Francisco Conservatory, the Schola Cantorum in Paris, the Percy Grainger Home and Museum in White Plains, and the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California. His solo and collaborative performances in the 2019-2020 season will take him to Nevada, North Carolina, Kentucky, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New York, and the United Kingdom. Before joining the faculty at Virginia Tech, Dr. Masters was principal opera coach for the Butler Opera Center at the University of Texas Austin. Most recently, he served as associate head coach for the Pittsburgh Festival Opera, coaching Strauss’s Arabella and Wagner’s Das Rheingold. He has conducted performances of numerous musicals and operas including Carousel, Le nozze di Figaro, Babes in Arms, Oh, Kay!, and Fiorello!. Articles and reviews written by Dr. Masters on a wide variety of topics have appeared in American Music Teacher, The American Recorded Sound Collections Journal, Stage Directors and Choreographers Journal, and The Record Collector. He is a member of the American Music Teacher editorial board. Dr. Masters is a Yamaha Artist. He holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music (DMA), the Juilliard School (MM), and the University of Colorado at Boulder (BM). He lives in Blacksburg with his husband Matthew, their daughter Alice, and a pug named Coleslaw. For more information, please visit www.richard-masters.com.
