The New York debut of Music on the Edge, on Tuesday, wasn’t predictable at all. This ensemble is based in Pittsburgh and directed by Mathew Rosenblum and Mr. Moe, whose morsel was played with conviction by Lindsey Goodman. The group was celebrating its 25th anniversary season with a filling spread at SubCulture.

Six Pianists at West Park Presbyterian Church in NY, November 30

Monday November 30th at 7:30 PM
at New York’s historic West-Park Presbyterian Church
86th St. @ Amsterdam Avenue

Six pianists make joyous music to help animals:
David Dubal, Jed Distler, Sachiko Kato, Simon Mulligan, Kirk Nurock & Margaret Leng Tan.

Of particular note for AMN readers is Margaret Leng Tan:

Margaret Leng Tan has established herself as a major force within the American avant-garde; a highly visible, talented and visionary pianist whose work sidesteps perceived artificial boundaries within the usual concert experience and creates a new level of communication with listeners. Embracing aspects of theater, choreography, performance and even “props” such as the teapot she “plays” in Alvin Lucier’s Nothing is Real, Tan has brought to the avant-garde, a measure of good old-fashioned showmanship tempered with a disciplinary rigor inherited from her mentor John Cage. This has won Tan acceptance far beyond the norm for performers of avant-garde music, as she is regularly featured at international festivals, records often for adventurous labels such as Mode and New Albion and has appeared on American public television, at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
