Seattle pianist and toy pianist Tiffany Lin performs Piano Racket: Music for the Unconventional Piano, a concert featuring solo music for prepared piano, string piano, retuned piano, and toy pianos. The program features a double world premiere of music especially written for this event by composers Byron Au Yong and Kraig Grady. Flirt, Au Yong’s portable interludes for toy pianos and ping pong balls, finds love in the little things of life with lip smacks, whistles, pops, swoops, yelps, and woofs. Grady’s first piece written for the piano in 35 years of composing, Corroded Communes, explores the retuned piano based on a specific tuning developed by musician George Secor.
