Pedja Muzijevic, piano
Available now. The first complete cycle begins Monday morning, November 15 and repeats weekly.
A new cycle of solo piano pieces created as a weeklong listening experience to attune us to the passing of time.
Gregory Spears’ music has been called “astonishingly beautiful” (The New York Times) and “coolly entrancing” (The New Yorker). His new work, Seven Days, was conceived as a Monday through Sunday listening experience that tunes us in to both the present moment as well as the cycle of the week. Each of the work’s 21 movements, most lasting around five minutes, are meant to be experienced using 92Y’s custom-designed app wherever we are at three points throughout the day – morning, afternoon and evening – over the course of seven days.
Pianist Pedja Muzijevic has been called “a musician with fiercely original ideas about the music he plays” (Financial Times). He is acclaimed as a champion of new music and for his innovative programming and creative collaborations.
The artwork on the Seven Days app is by Gloria Maximo, whose work has been presented at the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry, Chicago, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and more.
