This evening's concert features the Utah premiere of Michael Hersch's solo piano cycle, The Vanishing Pavilions. A work that is quite likely the most important solo piano piece of this century, The Vanishing Pavilions "unfolds in open-ended, haiku-like eruptions, though built on ideas that recur throughout the 50 movements, from a lamenting, chantlike melody to passages of such speed and density you'd think the complete works of Franz Liszt were played simultaneously within three minutes." The cycle is divided into two books and lasts 2.5 hours in performance. Composed in 2005, only two other pianists (including the composer himself) have performed the cycle in its entirety.
