Hi, everyone. Sorry to notify you so late; busy practicing!

The great "Blue" Gene Tyranny and I will be sharing a piano concert this Friday, Nov. 19 at 8 PM. Admission is $10.

If you have never heard "Blue," you really ought to. He has just about the most beautiful piano tone I've heard.

Presented by Lower East Side Performing Arts, and hosted at Faust Harrison Pianos, 207 W. 58th Street,

Program details follow.


Joseph Kubera will perform "Piano 2" (sonata) by Julius Eastman, "The Drifter" (1994) by "Blue" Gene Tyranny and "Phase 3" from "Variations on the Orange Cycle" by Elodie Lauten. Hailed by Village Voice critic Kyle Gann as one of “new music’s most valued performers,” Kubera has been recognized as a leading interpreter of contemporary music for the past 30 years, as a soloist with the Berlin Inventionen, the Warsaw Autumn, Prague Spring, Miami’s Subtropics Festival and Berkeley’s Edgefest, and as a pianist in residence at the Ostrava Days New Music Festival since its inception in 2001. He has been awarded grants through the NEA Solo Recitalist Program and the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts. Mr. Kubera has had a long and committed relationship to John Cage and his music since the early 1970s, and has toured with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company at Cage’s invitation. In recent years, he has championed the music of Julius Eastman, reviving little-known piano works and directing performances of his multiple-piano pieces. He has recorded for Wergo, New Albion, New World, Lovely Music, and other labels.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny will perform his composition "George Fox Searches" from his latest album, Detours for Unseen Worlds Records. A description of his work appears in Nicole Gagne's Historical Dictionary of Modern and Contemporary Music (Scarecrow Press). He is a composer and pianist who created over 50 works for various electronic and acoustic instruments and voices. He recently presented the New York premieres of several works for violin and piano at Roulette with violinist Conrad Harris. George Fox Searches attempts to draw a parallel between musical improvisation and the spontaneous revelation of spirit that occurs in Quaker meetings: "Stand still in that which is pure, after you see yourselves; and then mercy comes in." George Fox (1624-1691) struggled toward an authentic experience of spirit through prayer and meditation. Wandering through England and eventually America, he inspired the founding of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as the Quakers or Shakers. The material used for this improvisation is based upon the song "How Can I Keep From Singing?" written in 1860 by Robert Lowry, a Baptist minister.
