NEC Piano Department: A Fine Balance - Piano Music by Women and Men (Part One)
The planning of this series began with the observation that Fanny Mendelssohn and Peter Tchaikovsky each wrote a series of 12 pieces, each piece representing a month in the calendar. Other music in the series is paired similarly — pieces by women and men on similar “themes” — including music by NEC alumna Florence Price, Tania Léon, Meredith Monk and more.
Join us for Part 2 of our Piano Department concert series “A Fine Balance: Piano Music by Women and Men" on February 27th at 7:30 P.M. in Jordan Hall.
This is an in-person event with a public live stream.
