Jeff Stanek: Pleiades Dances for piano
ALL Chamber welcomes pianist Jeff Stanek for Pleiades Dances, a series of nine suites of piano pieces by Takashi Yoshimatsu, on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $20 general advance and $15 ALL members/students advance online, or $25 at the door for everyone.

Pleiades Dances (1986-2001) is a series of nine suites of piano pieces by Japanese composer Takashi Yoshimatsu, "written on the subject of the seven stars of the Pleiades, the seven colors of the rainbow, the seven tones of various modes, the seven rhythms from triple time to nonuple time and so forth...." In the northern hemisphere, the Pleiades star cluster is visible in the winter, as part of the constellation Taurus.

This rare live performance of the complete Pleiades Dances offers listeners an opportunity to become fully enveloped in Yoshimatsu's colorful soundworld, taking in the entirety of its extraordinary spaciousness and variety. At once dreamy and intricately fascinating, this is music of constantly shifting meters, metamorphosing patterns, poignant melodies, hypnotic polyrhythms, resonant modal washes, fleet counterpoint, and more. Duration approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including two intermissions.

Jeff Stanek plays and teaches music in Madison, WI. He has appeared as pianist, composer, or both, on renowned series including Token Creek Chamber Music Festival, Present Music, and Tanglewood Music Festival. Equally at home playing repertoire and improvising, Jeff is a favorite and longtime collaborator in dance studios as well as musical ensembles, and has been called on to perform in dozens of premieres of new works. He has degrees in piano performance and pedagogy from UW-Madison and in composition and piano from Indiana University; fellowships from MacDowell, Tanglewood, and Virginia Center for Creative Arts; and awards from ASCAP, BMI, National Federation of Music Clubs, and others
