Pianist Reinier van Houdt presents “The Well-Extended Piano,” a concert of electro-acoustic works for piano, including pieces by Jerry Hunt and Robert Ashley.
Mr. van Houdt studied piano at the Liszt-Akademie in Budapest and the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
His programmatic choices involve a fascination with matters that escape notation--sound, timing, space, physicality, memory, noise, and environment-- and points where interpretation touches improvisation.
Mr. van Houdt has worked with John Cage, Alvin Lucier, and Olivier Messiaen; and he has premiered music by Mr. Ashley and Mr. Hunt, among many other composers.
This will be Mr. van Houdt's first performance in New England.
