Cornish Presents: Jesse Myers


PONCHO Concert Hall Capitol Hill
Fri., Feb. 17, 8 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Cornish presents local pianist Jesse Myers in a program that focuses on John Cage's masterworks for the prepared piano, as Cornish proudly acknowledges itself as the birthplace of the prepared piano in 1940, thereby ushering in a monumental transformation of traditional sound into a complex percussive orchestra. Prepared piano is known for its alternative physical additions to piano strings, like metal screws, that alter the piano's traditional sound for a more expressive percussion lilt.
