Daniel Pesca, solo piano
September 25, 2020 at 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
The Department of Music presents pianist Daniel Pesca in concert. Daniel Pesca’s first solo program at UMBC represents his work as an interpreter of contemporary music. Pesca presents works he premiered by Alison Yun-Fei Jiang and Aaron Travers, as well as two major works he composed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Standards from the keyboard literature by Bach and Fauré round out the program.
Daniel Pesca, pianist, composer, and assistant professor at UMBC, is a passionate advocate for contemporary music and a committed performer of the classical repertoire. Pesca has played the world premieres of over one hundred solo and chamber works, many of which were composed for him. In the process, he has shared the stage with many leading new music ensembles, including Ensemble Signal, the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and Ensemble Dal Niente. In recent years, Daniel has performed at the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre, twice on Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess Concerts, at June in Buffalo, and at other festivals devoted to contemporary music in Spain, Italy, Greece, and Vermont.
