We’re grateful to John Edwards for the use of his evocative image: Star Clusters of Fall (2018) | Soft pastel on pastel paper | Etsy

Pianist Jeff Stanek offers the rare chance to encounter, in live performance, the complete cycle of this newly conceived set of preludes for the modern piano by Takashi Yoshimatsu.  Inspired both by the seven stars of Pleiades as well as the music of Bach’s inventions, the nine suites will be presented in their entirety in this evening long recital (two intermissions).
