New Music New College welcomes back phenomenal pianist Kathleen Supové, who will perform works from her current project about Migration.

Supové writes, “Much of human migration was shut down during the pandemic, but as the world opens up, we once again become aware of the vulnerability that we, as well as the animal kingdom, and even the geological and plant kingdoms, face as we move around on the planet. This music aims for cosmic expression, but it is also, like we are, simply ‘clay’. Let’s inhabit both realms with clarity and joy!”

Supové has thrilled NMNC audiences in the past, and in this concert will perform a world premiere.

Kathleen Supové is one of America’s most acclaimed and versatile contemporary music pianists, known for continually redefining what it means to be a pianist/keyboardist/performance artist in today’s world. In addition to her compelling virtuosity, she is also known for her inventive ways of breaking down the wall between performer and audience. After winning top prizes in the Gaudeamus International Competition for Interpretation of Contemporary Music, she began her career as a guest artist at the prestigious Darmstadt Festival in Germany. Since then, Ms. Supové has presented solo concerts entitled The Exploding Piano, in which she has championed the music of countless contemporary composers.

“What Ms. Supové is really exploding is the piano recital as we have known it, a mission more radical and arguably more needed.”

—Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
