Toronto-based pianist Michael Arnowitt performs “Crossroads”.

Pianist Michael Arnowitt presents his new program “Crossroads,” a concert of expressive, highly personal, and emotionally moving music. The centrepiece of the program is a piano transcription of the first movement of Mahler’s celebrated Ninth Symphony, universally recognized as one of the greatest symphony movements of all time, expressing Mahler’s feelings on the earth, nature, and death. Highlights of the program include two pieces by the present-day Ukrainian composer Victoria Poleva, whose absorbing and soulful music Michael Arnowitt has been trying to raise appreciation of in Canada and the United States, and a set of the wonderfully creative piano pieces of the early 20th century composer Arthur Lourié, whose forgotten music has only just been receiving attention from performers in recent years. The program is rounded out by shorter pieces by Bach, Schoenberg, Lutoslawski, and Debussy.

The pieces on the program reflect music whose expressive character the pianist believes is well-suited to his musical personality. Michael Arnowitt says, “Through these composers who did not shy away from exploring our innermost selves, these pieces touch our deepest emotions and spiritual yearnings.”
