Presented by Ben Opie and OPEK

Rzewski plays Rzewski

Presented by The Pittsburgh Festival of New Music

Saturday, May 247:30PM

American maverick composer and pianist Frederic Rzewski has made his home in Brussels since the 1970s. Now 76, his appearances in the US are less and less frequent. Compared by turns to legendary pianist Glenn Gould and blacklisted folk singer Pete Seeger, Rzewski’s works are often anarchic, sometimes satirical, and always powerfully virtuosic. Rzewski’s first-ever performance in Pittsburgh is long overdue.

“Rzewski plays Rzewski” is part of The Pittsburgh Festival of New Music, a four day event spanning a wide range of contemporary chamber music.  For more information on the festival, visit Alia Musica online.

Dailey & Vincent

Presented by Druskey Entertainment

Wednesday, June 47PM (Doors 6PM)

In the world of acoustic traditional music, “sibling harmony” is special. It’s no accident that the best harmonies in bluegrass, dating back to its earliest days, have been by siblings: the Monroe Brothers, the Stanley Brothers, the Osborne Brothers… the list goes on.  Although Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent aren’t related by blood, the instinctive vocal blend they have achieved rivals that of any singing siblings: it’s no accident that they titled an earlier album Brothers From Different Mothers, and with Brothers Of The Highway, the ties they’ve forged grow ever stronger.
