Night Thoughts, Adam Tendler, Piano

Best known for once bringing modern American music to all fifty states out of his Hyundai, 2012 American Pianists Association Classical Fellowship Award Nominee Adam Tendler returns to the Rothko Chapel to present “Night Thoughts,” a recital of meditative modern American music composed in the spirit of homage and dedication, including works by John Cage, whose centenary is 2012. The program also includes works by Charles Ives, David Lang, Samuel Barber, John Adams, and Aaron Copland. Tendler will perform as a premiere suite Ned Rorem’s complete published piano music composed for James Holmes, Rorem’s late partner. Tendler will also present works of his own, including the Houston premiere of his experimental homage to Tim McGraw, “only every other memory.”
