Danny Holt + Steven Arntson
Los Angeles-based pianist Danny Holt’s Piano/Percussion Project situates the pianist amidst an array of percussion instruments, as he is called on to perform on both simultaneously. An eclectic lineup of composers from around the globe has written works specifically for Holt’s piano/percussion setup, each responding to the instrumentation in his/her own way. Opening is Seattle-based concertinist Steven Arntson, whose focus on the classical tradition and extended performance techniques aims to expand the limits of what can be done with the humble concertina.
