Piano by Nature TAPESTRIES Concert

November 18 @ 7:00 pm

Saturday, November 18th at 7PM
Sunday, November 19th at 3PM
At the Hand House, Elizabethtown, NY

For our next set of concerts, Piano by Nature would like to present you with a sensory banquet compiled of musical works brimming with musical color evocative of the Mediterranean and beyond. All of the works on this program focus on gorgeous singing melodies supported by lush, classical and sometimes jazz-influenced harmonies along with an abundant use of folk idioms. And to create a sight-sound experience, we will cover the floors of the Hand House with a plethora of Turkish rugs from multiple traditions and eras.

Four Turkish composers will be featured—Say, Saygun, Lorca, and Tugcular—all friends and colleagues of bassist Volkan Orhon—and leading voices in their seamless ability to marry Classical and folk compositional traditions. Amidst these woven colors of his homeland, Volkan will share this stunning music along with his intimate stories and personal connections to the composers. And we will also be welcoming the consummate Boston cellist Peter Zay as our special guest artist, who will bring stories of his own. These concerts promise to be a rare in-depth glimpse into the traditions and colors of Turkish culture, Italian masterworks, and much more. We so look forward to seeing you there.


On Saturday, November 18th at 7PM and Sunday, November 19th at 3PM, Piano by Nature will present virtuoso double bassist Volkan Orhon with pianist Rose Chancler and cellist Peter Zay in a concert of astoundingly lush and beautiful music from the Mediterranean. Composers include Fazil Say, Ennio Morricone, and many more.

Reservations can be made by emailing or calling 518.962.8899. Tickets may be purchased at the door: $20 for adults, $5 for 15-and-under. Learn more at
