Tune in for the launch of KING FM’s Grand Piano Hour, broadcast live from the Steinway Gallery in downtown Seattle with an audience present. Host Marta Zekan will showcase Seattle-based Irish pianist Peter Mack in a program featuring music by Scarlatti, Robinson, Schulhoff, Mompou and Gershwin. Of note, three women composers’ piano music will be also featured with works by Margaret Bonds, Germaine Tailleferre, and Madeleine Dring.
“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.” – Los Angeles Times
Classical KING FM’s Grand Piano Hour is made possible in part through the generosity of the Tateuchi Foundation.
