Hauschka at the Mondavi Center
May 21, 2013
Volker Bertelmann, the man behind Hauschka, is a Dusseldorf-based pianist who began classical lessons at age 9 and composed his first film music at age 18 for a German crime series. He is best known for his use of the prepared piano, an instrument that has its sound altered by placing different objects between or on the strings, or on the hammers and dampers.
This event highlights contemporary classical music, a genre that combines the old and the new. Hauschka will play selections from his recent album, Salon Des Amateurs, as well as other pieces to be determined.
**It includes a post-performance Q&A as well as a reception with refreshments.
This performance is presented by the Aggie Arts Internship with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Mondavi Center launched the Aggie Arts program in 2011, a 3-quarter learning laboratory for UC Davis students interested in a career in arts administration.
