Pianist Nadia Shpachenko will perform Pamela Z’s “Balòn” as part of a concert of works she commissioned for her GOAT project at Bargemusic in Brooklyn, NY USA Bargemusic presents GRAMMY® Award-winning Ukrainian-American pianist Nadia Shpachenko on Friday, July 22nd at 7pm. On the Here and Now Series, GOAT chronicles the beautiful game. The ballet of the masses. The real university. Soccer! Fútbol! Such a microcosm of the crushing disappointments, the exuberant triumphs, the grueling struggles that make up life. Shpachenko has enlisted ten composers to capture the sounds, rhythms, spirit, and culture of the game for this new program of cutting-edge piano music, supported by New Music USA. Premieres of works by Christopher Cerrone, Pamela Z, Ian Dicke, Oliver Dubon, Tom Flaherty, Harold Meltzer, Dana Kaufman, David Sanford, Adam Schoenberg, and Evan Ware will have you on the edge of your seat laughing, crying, and cheering with all the tensions and intensity of matchday.
