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.
Season 1, Episode 3
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 🙂

“You can’t see music as it passes through the air. You can’t grasp it and hold on to it. You can’t smell it. You can’t taste it. But it has a most powerful effect on most people. And that is a wondrous thing to contemplate.”
