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.

NEW MUSIC DELAWARE

I'm very happy to share that my performance of Daniel Dorff's The 7 Chakras was featured Sat Nov 7, 8pm, on NMD's first virtual concert:

George Crumb and His Legacy

ROME SCHOOL AT HOME

 

As a faculty member of The Rome School of Music, Drama & Art at the Catholic University of America, I was honored to be featured in their first piano episode of the "Rome School at Home" in September 2020. It was fun to look back on some of my favorite moments from Daily Dose of Piano. 

I hope these videos bring you joy and brighten your days.

FRANCESCA HURST

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'.

LISTEN

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.

PREMIERES

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.
