I've been getting press releases for various musical events for some time now. I had been resistant to publishing them on my blog, but I've changed my mind. Here is the first announcement.
Chad Twedt – A master Pianist
It’s not grandma’s elevator music; it’s hypnotizing
(South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) – Chad Twedt not only knows how to please any audience with his musical selections, but he also knows how to be an entertainer. This is not grandma’s elevator music playing Thursday, August 10 at 7:30pm at the Boathouse Theatre. It’s piano playing that hypnotizes!
This hypnotizing pianist and original composer was classically trained from the age of six through private lessons. After receiving both his Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and his Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics from University of Nevada, Reno in 1999, he went on in 2001 to earn his Masters of Music in Piano Performance.
Chad’s past solo repertoire is well-rounded, playing baroque and various styles of tonal contemporary music. He mastered some of the most demanding solo repertoire, including Chopin’s Third Sonata, Alkan’s “Le Festin d’Esope,” Liebermann’s “Gargoyles,” Schubert’s “Wanderer” Fantasy, Beethoven’s “Appassionata” Sonata and Stravinsky’s “Three Movements from Petrushka,” including his own additions and changes to Petrushka, which made sections of the piece sound closer to its original orchestration but also made it more challenging to play.
Although Chad never thought of himself as a composer, he has more than proved himself with his original album Ostinato, his debut recording that includes four movements of inspirational virtuosity. The unusually diverse appeal of his music comes from his unique blend of classical background and his non-standard musical influences, extending to new age, alternative and even techno.
