Pianist Andrew Write will be featured in this week’s show from The Music Treasury, with the apt subtitle “The Art of Transcription”.
Driven by his own enthusiasm and creativity, Andrew Wright has searched out “hidden gems” from some more minor figures of composers from the 19th and 20th century. Aside from piano literature, Wright has also explored opera, and now has released two CDs of piano adaptations/transcriptions from significant composers of the genre — Verdi, Bellini, Wagner, Rossini…
The show on this Sunday evening will feature works from those releases: “The Operatic Pianist” and “A Night at the Opera”, including Andrew Wright’s own transcriptions, along with those of Liszt, Martucci, and Thalberg. It can be heard on 28 January 2018, between 19:00 and 21:00 PST, as well as a live streaming of the show from kzsulive.stanford.edu on the Internet, hosted by the inimitable Gary Lemco.
