July 28, 7:30 – 9:30 pm
Faculty Recital – Boston University Tanglewood Institute Young Artists Piano Program
Featuring Israeli pianist Boaz Sharon, Professor of Piano and Chair of the Piano Department of Boston University’s School of Music, features Rudepoêma by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos. This monumental work is the largest and most challenging work the composer wrote for the solo piano. Villa-Lobos telescoped two words together: rude, meaning “rude”, “coarse”, “uncultured”, “discourteous”, and poema, “poem”. The piece was intended as a tonal portrait of the Polish-American pianist Arthur Rubinstein. Filled with varied rhythms and dynamic tempo changes, Rudepoêma might hint the heat and excitement of Brazilian jungle and the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil, the composer’s beloved home country.
