Spanning the length of a single day, composer Michael Torke’s newest work takes listeners on an audio tour of Miami through the most unusual medium of ten grand pianos performing together. + According to the composer: Each of the twelve movements of Miami Grands conveys not only a particular location, but a specific moment as well. + The journey spans a single day, from before dawn to after midnight. + In every movement, a theme is pitted against a version of it twice as long (augmentation). + Notes are corrected where the rules of counterpoint demand it. + Most movements also incorporate a version of the theme half as long (diminution), yet still fits with it. + The explicit use of complete augmentations and diminutions here is not common in music, although note-to-note corrections are rooted in Baroque and Classical counterpoint. + What may appear to be radical in this piece is actually based in a quite traditional handling of materials. + My aim, however, is to discover artistic possibilities rather than revisiting historical problems.
