Conrad Tao is one of today’s most extraordinary young musical talents – The New York Times called him a performer of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision,” while NPR Music called him “a musician of deep intellectual and emotional means.”
Conrad will use Noteflight to explain the composition process and musical ideas behind his piece A Walk (for Emilio). The Masterclass will include the live score of the work side-by-side with a video of Conrad himself. Viewer questions will also be taken during the masterclass.
When: February 10 at 8PM EST
The masterclass will offer insight into how Conrad conceived and created his new solo piano piece A Walk (for Emilio), written as part of his new Warner Classics album Pictures and recalling one of his earliest piano teachers, Emilio del Rosario, who died in 2010.
Conrad says of the work: “I sometimes imagine spending time with ‘Mr. D’ today…I imagine the two of us talking about music as we always did. A Walk (for Emilio) is about those imagined memories. It alternates between ambling, freely lyrical passages and anxious, pleading, yearning chords.”
Following the masterclass, Noteflight users will be able to submit their own scores to Conrad for constructive feedback via Facebook and email.
