Musical Weekend with Peter Mack

January 11 & 12, 2020

Saturday, January 11, 2020
7:00pm – 9:00pm Lecture

Marvelous Moderns and their
Needlessly Neglected Mid-Level Masterpieces

In this repertoire lecture, Peter Mack explores mostly modern shorter works, offering an alternative to the tried-and-true twentieth-century favorites that we hear again and again. There is a vast body of neglected repertoire out there. This demonstration uncovers unknown pieces to spark the interest of students, teachers, adjudicators, and audiences alike. Most of the pieces played are of mid-range difficulty. Sections from over forty works are performed, and there is an extensive handout in which the difficulty for each piece is assessed, along with its publishing information. It’s a fast-moving, fun talk. Nothing in the lecture lasts too long, so if you don’t like a work that’s being played, don’t worry! It will end soon, and there’ll be something different coming along right
away!

Teachers will be notified of acceptance by December 16th
The fee is $45 per selected student.

Peter Mack

was born in Ireland,
where he had his early training with Frank
Heneghan at the Dublin College of Music.
Subsequent study was at Trinity College, Dublin,
and with Bela Siki at the University of Cincinnati
College Conservatory of Music and at the University
of Washington where he earned his doctorate in
piano performance.

Mack has performed throughout the United States and Europe, as well
as in Australia and the former Soviet Union. He is the winner of the New
Orleans, Young Keyboard Artists and Pacific International Piano
Competitions. His prize in the Sherman–Clay competition included a
Steinway grand piano. Mack is well known for his extensive repertoire,
having performed twenty–five concertos with orchestras. He is equally
in demand as a performer, clinician, convention artist, and teacher, and
his pupils are frequent winners of local, national, and international
competitions.

“Mack is one of those lucky ones, born with a completely balanced set
of talents. He has perfect piano hands, his technique is all but infallible,
he has boundless temperament, style and taste, and above all, he
communicates directly…in all capacities he is indefatigable….”
–Los Angeles Times
