Baruch PAC presents the Israeli-American pianist Yael Weiss performing music by Beethoven alongside newly commissioned works from her groundbreaking project "32 Bright Clouds". Commemorating Beethoven’s 250th birth anniversary, she’s commissioned composers from 32 countries of conflict and unrest - from Ghana, Iran, and Jordan, to the Philippines, Syria, and Venezuela - all united by musical themes from Beethoven. Each new composition in "32 Bright Clouds", is inspired by one of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas, and the entire cycle of new works is unified by a single “peace motif” from Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis.
The recital streams online October 1-18, with a special live at-home conversation with Ms. Weiss and some of the composers on October 6 at 7:00 pm EDT. The program features a world premiere by Bongani Ndodana-Breen from South Africa, as well as New York premieres by Saed Haddad (Jordan), Aslihan Keçebasoglu (Turkey), and Adina Izarra (Venezuela).
