Dr. Luke Tyler, assistant professor of music, will present a live virtual piano recital featuring works all based on poetry this evening.
The program, “Darkness and Light,” features poems of love, loss, hope, and despair. The featured work, Maurice Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit, tells three separate stories describing various creatures of the night. Scarbo, the final movement, is often described as one of the darkest and most challenging piano works in existence.
The program will be live-streamed on the Loras College Music Facebook page beginning at 7 p.m. You can access the performance here.
