Conrad Tao

When: Fri., March 25, 8 p.m. 2016

At the age of twenty-one, pianist and composer Conrad Tao has apparently already shed the “wunderkind” label. For this recital, he focuses largely on American composers. Frederic Rzewski’s set of North American Ballads includes discursive settings of old Union tunes, including an awesome depiction of the sounds of a cotton mill. Aaron Copland’s Piano Sonata was nearly lost when his only copy was stolen in 1941. We also get a new work by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang, and Schumann’s kaleidoscopic Carnaval. And on March 24, Tao will read new works by composers from Duke’s Music Department. —Dan Ruccia
