The Art of the Piano festival brings together the world’s most celebrated faculty instructors, a class of future master pianists, and audiences of music lovers for three weeks of performances, classes, and a shared passion for the piano.
A Festival Inspired By The Masterclasses of Franz Liszt
Composer Franz Liszt hosted masterclasses in which pianists would gather to watch and listen as Liszt taught one student at a time. It is in that spirit that Awadagin Pratt founded the Art of the Piano annual festival. It is his vision to recreate an environment where expert-level artists can work to build the profile and artistry of talented, budding players.

Think of it as an old fashioned radio show where Awadagin opines on possibly any and everything. So far he has discussed a bit about Beethoven, BIA, (Black in America), and now “Words on Fire”–a show about Words, Music, and Fire. Every episode is organized in a different format, and will come out so far–at least in Covid-times–… quarterly 🙂
