Denman Maroney Quintet

DENMAN MARONEY QUINTET Ned Rothenberg, Dave Ballou, Reuben Radding, Michael Sarin Thursday, April 25, 8PM, Bezanson Recital Hall “There are few minds as agile and inquiring as that of pianist, composer and educator Denman Maroney,” writes Mark Medwin. “Over nearly 40 years, he has managed to rethink the piano’s vocabulary, creating a readily identifiable language on the instrument. He calls his contribution “hyperpiano,” a method of playing inside the piano that is characterized by a dizzying and diverse pallet of sonorities that make the instrument into an orchestra. He has also developed an equally unique compositional language. Yet, there is a directness, at times almost a simplicity, in his music.”
