Performers

The music Czech composer Leoš Janáček is "very difficult to describe,” observes acclaimed Polish-born pianist Piotr Anderszewski. “It’s a very unique language. There is nothing like it before or after.” For his first appearance here since 2009, Anderszewski will perform Book II from Janáček’s On an Overgrown Path, as part of an SCP Piano recital on Oct. 22. “It’s a cycle of small pieces, which are just so wonderfully original in every single way — harmonically, rhythmically."
