Haskell Small Piano Concert
Composer and pianist, Haskell Small has been praised for the exquisite blend of sound and silence in his compositions. Over the course of his career, Small's contemplative nature has drawn him to music that seeks a spiritual quietude that approaches silence. His ongoing series of compositions, performances and recordings, "Journeys in Silence," reflects this interest. Small regularly tours the United States, Europe and Japan, programming his own compositions as well as works by other composers that share his aesthetic, performing in monasteries, churches and galleries as well as more conventional concert venues. Haskell Small received his musical training at the San Francisco Conservatory and Carnegie-Mellon University. He studied piano with Leon Fleisher and William Masselos, and composition with Vincent Persichetti and Ronald Leich. Haskell Small is a faculty member and former Piano Department Chair of the Washington (DC) Conservatory of Music, where he has taught since 1984. His concert will last for about an hour and will be followed by a reception where you will have an opportunity to meet Haskell Small, talk with him and purchase his CDs.
