Moebius

Come hear a piano recital of widely varying styles – bookended with sonatas by the incomparable Ludwig van Beethoven.  Founder and Pianist for the Houston New Arts Movement, Adam Vincent Clay will perform a solo piano recital that wraps the stark stylistic differences of Russian romanticism found in Rachmaninoff, with that of the polish rhythms and melodies of Frederic Chopin, and the dense and dramatic writing of Johannes Brahms, the impressionistic and Jazz inspired unique voice of American avant-garde pianist Frederic Rzewski, into the bookended works of Beethoven, that so appropriately place him as a pinnacle of form and expression in the world of solo piano.

“The way piano repertoire continually reflects upon itself through history, and is inspired and influenced by itself, calls to mind the Moebius strip:  Though pieces of music affect us in various ways and come from so many different cultures, histories, political circumstances, they all express something that is undeniably human, and thus, part of us all in some way.  Like the Moebius strip, we see, at first, some totally new side, a twist, in music that seems foreign, but upon further inspection, its connection to us all becomes apparent.”

Come hear compositional masters of Czech, French, American, and Argentinian music. Join musicians, Adam Vincent Clay (pianist, and founder), Rachel McCarthy Clay (pianist), violinists Laura Cividino and Luis Ramirez as we bring to life Dvorak’s great Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81. “Dvorak’s Piano Quintet is full of Czech dances rhythms, sweeping romantic gestures, gorgeous melodies, passages of virtuosity, motoric, rhythmic drive… basically everything you could ask for in a large chamber work.” says founder, Adam Vincent Clay.  Soak in the beautiful and intense sounds of William Bolcom’s ragtime music for piano. Savor the intricacies of music by Ravel, once called the “Swiss watchmaker” by Stravinsky.
