Adam Tendler: Inheritances, at 92Y
Saturday March 11, 2023, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00
“a probing and persuasive musician … a quietly charismatic pianist … intrepid … outstanding … maverick”
The New Yorker
After his father’s unexpected death, acclaimed New York-based pianist Adam Tendler used his inheritance – a wad of cash received in a parking lot – to begin a commissioning project, inviting some of today’s most influential composers and sound artists to create new piano works exploring the idea of inheritance itself. Woven into an intimate program, these pieces tell a universal story of lineage, loss, and place, and result in a meditation on confronting our past while moving toward the future.
The New York premiere of Inheritance features works by Laurie Anderson, Nico Muhly, Missy Mazzoli, Devonté Hynes, inti figgis-vizueta, Pamela Z, Ted Hearne, Angélica Negrón, Christopher Cerrone, Marcos Balter, Darian Donovan Thomas, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Scott Wollschleger, Mary Prescott, Timo Andres and John Glover.
Concert available for viewing online for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
