The inimitable concert series Piano Spheres—founded 28 years ago in Los Angeles by pianist, scholar, teacher, and new music champion Leonard Stein—presents new music from Los Angeles-based composers for piano, toy piano, and microtonal keyboards. The concert features innovative pianists Mark Robson, Ray/Kallay Duo, and HOCKET performing works by Nina Shekhar, Samuel Adams, Sarah Gibson, Thomas Kotcheff, and Daniel Rothman, among others. Piano Spheres is both a musical collective and a presenting organization that has been presenting innovative new music for the piano for over 28 years. While all individual artists have performed in New York before, this is Piano Spheres’ first ensemble performance in New York.
