Selections from John Cage’s magical Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano, inspired by the composer’s study of Indian philosophy and aesthetic, provide a dreamlike prelude to an evening of virtuosic music for piano, under the fervent direction of Michael Kieran Harvey. The later half of the program opens with keyboard music by Frank Zappa’s 18th century Italian namesake and includes selections from Harvey’s 48 Fugues for Frank, his exhilarating homage to Frank Zappa.
