Welcome to the 9th Annual Piano Project Concerts at the Bloomingdale School of Music! Set the date – Saturday, March 5, 2016 – and join us as the BSM Piano Department explores “The Piano of the 19th Century: Romanticism and Beyond” with over 70 piano students and 14 members of our piano faculty. When we think of Romantic music, we remember the breathtaking, often rhapsodic melodies that define the works of Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Mendelssohn and Schubert. Filled with powerful, extreme emotions from terror to sublime, the Romantic era embodies the nature of the human voice applied to the piano as it developed in size and sonority. This is music that lingers in our ears and expresses the dramatic journey of the human spirit through story-telling and reflection. We’re thrilled to bring this music to life in this special presentation that literally defines the modern piano through its exhilarating repertoire.
