Expanding the Piano: Saturday, June 27 | 10pm

by Maggie Molloy
John Cage’s prepared piano is among the featured music in this week’s episode.

It’s an instrument that’s been around for over 300 years—and composers are still discovering new ways to play it.

Throughout history, the piano has captured the imaginations of composers ranging from Beethoven to Chopin, Brahms, and Rachmaninoff. On this week’s episode of Second Inversion, we’ll take a look at how composers today are expanding the piano keyboard.

Tune in to hear modern and creative approaches to this familiar instrument, including music from composers who play inside the piano, a performer who can play three pianos at once, and a man who threw a wrench in the classical piano tradition.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, June 27 at 10pm PT.

This is an encore episode which first aired in April.
