This Saturday afternoon, June 20th, I attended a Whisperings Solo Piano House Concert featuring Tim Neumark along with Michael Logozar and Darla Bower. It lasted about 2 hours at the Logozar home in Round Rock, Texas (near Austin) in the piano studio overlooking their patio deck and creek. What a wonderful experience to be able to listen to these fantastic piano artists perform live right in front of me, along with about a small group of about 30-40 other invited guests.
Also, it was great to meet and talk with them personally. What amazing talent and such beautiful solo piano music! I’m excited because Michael Logozar told me they plan to have about four concerts a year. I feel lucky that I have this opportunity.
Here is an approximate playlist of the songs performed during the concert. Also Darla played some unpublished songs: one called Falling Petals, and a new playful classical piece.
“Concert – 2015 June 20 (Playlist) – 14 songs, 59 min
I have included a few photos which I took during the concert as each of them performed. Also, they all participated in a spontaneous improvisation at the end which they made up on the spot based on three random notes from an audience member. It’s amazing how they can just jointly all compose on the spot, and even play together, as they shift around bench positions on the fly, and it all sounds really good.
Also, I was the winner of a CD giveaway drawing, and I got the album Heart by Doug Hammer. Here’s a photo of the CD cover.
I have also included the album playlist here as well.
