Piano Extravaganza, “Return of the Duo Grand Pianos”
The critically-acclaimed piano spectacular returns for its fourth consecutive year featuring five brilliant community pianists – presenting the Two Piano Extravaganza! Live on stage in the historic Kiggins Theater in downtown Vancouver, four Vancouver pianists will play duo piano music on two Steinway grand pianos generously provided by Michelle’s Pianos. VSO pianist Michael C. Liu will perform together with the esteemed teacher and pianist Kathy Charles. The East Meets West Piano Duo of Cinda Goold Redman and Elena Vozheiko-Wheaton makes its fourth appearance, quickly becoming an annual crowd favorite. As a bonus, we will also spotlight a new Vancouver pianist, Anton Zotov, in a debut performance for the community. Musical repertoire includes 2-piano arrangements of Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, Piazzolla’s Libertango, Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances, and Marquez’s Danzon No. 2, as well as works specifically written for the piano by Debussy, Stravinsky, and Kapustin.
