Why is this music so relevant to our times? How do you express opposing emotions at the same time? What makes this Russian music sound Russian? What did he innovate to continue doing what matters to him?

Steinway Artist Hsing-ay Hsu "Sing-I Shoo" guides you on a VIDEO ESSAY connecting historical context, and piano demos with musical inspiration, a Hi-Def PERFORMANCE filmed at a historical mansion, and a personal ZOOM reception, to explore how Rachmaninoff transforms a tragic prelude by Chopin into twenty two variations of beauty, inspiration, and triumph. BONUS: Prelude in G major filmed at a breath-taking NYC art exhibit.

Can't make the time? No problem- the event will be on demand for one week following.
