DAILY DOSE OF PIANO
A little musical medicine, if you will.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I shared 100 piano pieces, one piece each day, to bring some music and beauty into the world.
Recognized for her “tender lyricism” (The Washington Post), yet not afraid to shout, swing her foot onto the piano or don fingerless gloves if the music demands it, pianist Francesca Hurst divides her playing evenly between classical and contemporary music. Passionate about connecting with the audience, she loves giving salon-style concerts in small, intimate venues.
Collaborative Concert: Debussy Preludes
and original artwork
"BuMian" was inspired by a trip to the islands of Hong Kong. The title is in Mandarin, and translates as 'sleepless'.
There's something magical about live performance, those moments that transcend time and space, where the audience experiences the artist becoming one with the music. I strive to create these moments
in all of my performances.
I love premiering pieces because I get to present brand new music to the world. It's incredibly exciting, and a big responsibility, and I do my best to understand the music and convey its message to the audience. I cherish interacting with composers to expand my comprehension of the music.
During my Daily Dose of Piano, I had the honor of premiering several new works, online! I have also premiered pieces by Jennifer Margaret Barker, David Barton, Robert A. Baker, Cody Brookshire, Luciano Correa, Joel Friedman, Rahilia Hasanova, Marc Migo', and others.
