Pianist Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa performs music by Rodney Sharman | Music on Main

Pianist Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa performs piano works 'Voyageur', 'Watchful' and 'Notes on Beautiful' by Canadian composer Rodney Sharman. http://www.iwaasa.com/ http://rodney-sharman.squarespace.com/ Programme Notes: 'Voyageur' Voyageurs paddled freight canoes along the 5000 kilometre river road used by Canada's fur trade in the 18th and 19th centuries. The repeated figure in the pianist's left hand suggests the rhythm of movement through water. Undulating patterns at different speeds are layered to create the restrained rhythmic and harmonic surface of 'Watchful'. Stillness and motion together. 'Notes on Beautiful' is a re-imagining of Stephen Sondheim's duet "Beautiful", between a mother and her adult child about the transience of all things. Filmed Thursday, December 12, 2019 at Heritage Hall | Vancouver BC.
