Clipper Erickson is classical pianist educated at Juilliard, Yale, and Indiana U. who is currently a Prof. of piano at Temple University in Philadelphia and Westminster in Princeton.

He will be performing remotely on one of 424 Centennial Steinway pianos ever built at Cunningham Piano Company. His choice of the Centennial (#123, built in 1876) has to do with the voice of that instrument and how it responds to him playing works of Chopin, Maria Szymanowska, and Cécile Chaminade, who both influenced and were influenced by the work of this titan of piano repertoire.

The concert will be streamed at 3 pm on March 7th. Click Here for more information on the recital.

This event was recorded last evening on The Centennial and it went beautifully! I would love for some PianoWorld members to join me at the broadcast!

I attended, remoyely, and I can honestly say I have never enjoyed a concert more in my life. My only regret is that I don't have better speakers. I think I might get that sorted out very soon.

There was even a chat session afterwards. As I am in central europe it was too late for me to stay for that.

Thanks to all concerned.

It was Informative, too!

Rich did an intro video,... then there was a Q&A session, half way through,... & finally, a chat at the end, as Philip noted above

Thank you Rich for the ticket to that wonderful recital. We both listened. The piano was exquisite and music was beautifully performed.It was so interesting to hear that Chopin Sonata on that piano! ( one of my favorite pieces )
The Ballade , Nocturnes and the Waltz in Csharp minor , all sounded unique yet beautiful on that piano. From this instrument we can get an idea how Chopin's music sounded in his day.
The program was an interesting one the polish woman composer's beautiful Nocturne. Actually I have heard some of
Chaminades music before but I never realised how bold , and
intricate some of it could sound . I have a very old copy of a Chaminade piece my aunt used to play. "Autumn" (but in the title is in french) It was apparently one of Chaminades most popular pieces .

Thanks for posting this, Rich!

I wasn't able to watch it in real time, but I just finished it and thoroughly enjoyed it, both the performance and the discussion too.

Philip, when you uncovered and opened up your Bechstein, I thought you were going to play! wink On a serious note, it was interesting to see how much it resembles the Cunningham-rebuilt piano that Rich just featured in a different thread.

There's a "ticket" link at the bottom of the homepage of Clipper's website:

https://www.clippererickson.com

Tickets are $20, but I think in keeping with the theme of giving voice to composers who haven't always had one, and making that accessible to those who might otherwise also be underrepresented, there's also a free link, and pay-what-you-can link.

Just in case there is any confusion, here is the “free link”. Since this is a fund raiser, give if you feel compelled to (it is not my fund raiser, it is just my piano):
