Pianist Frederic Rzewski in Concert at Miami Dade County Auditorium

Sat 1 Apr, 2017

Composer and virtuosic pianist Frederic Rzewski will open Tigertail’s Fire festival with a solo concert. Rzewski is recognized both for his innovative works and for his strong political convictions. His pieces often bridge the gap between classical music and avant-garde jazz. This major figure will make a rare appearance in the U.S. for a single Miami concert.

Rzewski began playing piano at age five. He received his bachelors degree at Harvard University and his master’s at Princeton University. In 1960, a trip to Italy was formative in his future musical development. In addition to studying there with Luigi Dallapiccola, he began a career as a performer of new piano music, often with an improvisatory element.
