If two hands are better than one, than four is close to perfection, especially if they belong to pianists Efi Hackmey and Andrew Harley in One Piano, Four Hands. Both Levine faculty artists, Hackmey and Harley team up for a virtuosic performance of beloved works for piano for four hands, including pieces by Mozart, Schubert and the Liszt transcription of "Der, welcher wandelt diese Straße voll Beschwerden" from The Magic Flute. From Israel and England respectively, the two have performed extensively throughout North America and abroad, astonishing critics and audiences with their double-serving of musical genius. Please see event description for more details about the concert's adventurous program. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “In this brilliant, sympathetic, and often witty full-length study of our ‘Kafka domesticus,’ Claudia Roth Pierpoint weaves together Philip Roth’s life, his extraordinary fictions, and the cultural climate to which he fiercely responded. ... I can’t imagine any study that will give greater pleasure to Roth’s many intimate companions, his readers.” --David Denby
