Hailed as “one of the most remarkable young pianists before the public,” Italian pianist Alessio Bax joins the MMF Piano Institute as a visiting artist for the first time. Audiences will have the special opportunity to be transported by what the Dallas Morning News calls “an out-of-body experience,” in his playing. Bax will offer a program of works from the classical to modern era, including Mozart’s Six Variations on a theme from the Clarinet Quintet, KV. 581, KV Anh 137, Scriabin’s Sonata No. 3 in F-sharp minor, Op. 23, and Ravel’s La Valse, a ground-breaking tribute to the classical waltz, which evolves into a stunning breakdown of traditional form, finishing in a danse macabre. Between his busy performance schedule, Bax serves as the Johnson-Prothro Artists-in-Residence at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts.
