Haskell Small at the Allis
November 18, 2023 | 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Join us at the Charles Allis for a performance by Composer and Pianist Haskell Small on his "Celebration of Healing Tour" which celebrates his full recovery from a stroke in 2021. Small will perform Beethovens's immensely difficult "The Diabelli Variations" along with a few of his favorite compositions. One lucky audience member will get a chance to play an improvisation piece with Mr. Small.
This performance is in partnership with Froedert Hospital and will include a brief talk on the symptoms, signs and preventative care of strokes by a Froedert neurosurgeon.
Date: Saturday, Nov. 18
Time: 4:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Composer and Pianist Haskell Small has been critically praised for the exquisite blend of sound and silence in his compositions and for his prodigious technique and subtle touch at the piano. His discography includes over a dozen releases of his own compositions as well as Bach, Mompu, Gershwin and more on the MSR, Naxos, Centaur and 4Tay labels. On national and international tours he has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts, and Spoleto USA, among others, and has received commissions from the Washington Ballet, Georgetown Symphony, Three Rivers Piano Competition, and more.
After suffering a stroke in February 2021, Mr. Small has used his rehabilitation journey as a creative muse. He began arranging classical masters for the right hand alone and composing his own work, Diary of a Stroke: The Adventures of Herb and Pete.
