UHM Piano Project - Chopin & Scriabin Preludes

April 30, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Manoa Campus, Orvis Auditorium

Jonathan Korth & Thomas Yee, directors

For the Second Annual Piano Project at UHM, approximately 30 piano majors from the Music Department present a concert of the 24 Chopin and 24 Scriabin Preludes. Join us as we explore the Prelude as a stand-alone piece by these giants of the Romantic Era.

Chopin’s Preludes, Op. 28, give a wide-ranging view of his compositional output, demanding musical and technical variety of the pianist; some Preludes are tremendously difficult and unrelentingly dramatic, while others are often played by novices and have charm in their simplicity. As Liszt said, these Preludes are “poetic, analogous to those of a great contemporary poet, who cradles the soul in golden dreams, and elevates it to the regions of the ideal."

Early in his life, Scriabin hoped to emulate Chopin and composed many works inspired by his idol. Scriabin’s Op. 11 Preludes mirror Chopin’s in key and structure, but the result is very different. Tuneful and poetic, these hint at what is to come in Scriabin’s Music with chromaticism, beauty, and lush harmonies. This is a unique opportunity to hear these gems paired together on one concert!

This concert will also be performed at the Honolulu Academy of Arts on May 5th.
