The University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC in Spanish), will hold the “Program II , of Contemporary Piano” on Saturday and Sunday April 26 and 27. This project aims at the dissemination of contemporary piano music. The concert is designed for the general audience, with emphasis on students and music teachers. Tries to present a show of the piano and musical development from the 19th Century to the present day, contributing to the discovery and dissemination of this instrument, trying to achieve in the performers the interest to collaborate with composers, seeking the development and the evolution of their musical creations. Due to the didactic nature of the performances, other objectives are the maintenance and attracting of new audiences. The second recital with the series, “Extended Piano Techniques ” is intended to make a small collection of works that make use of techniques such as clusters, harmonics, harp music, prepared piano and even the use of electronic tapes.
