Sarah Rothenberg, pianist
EPIGRAPH FOR A CONDEMNED BOOK

Pianist Sarah Rothenberg's latest original performance work. Baudelaire's masterpiece, Flowers of Evil, was banned upon publication. Chopin's daring musical talent flourished in the poet's city of inspiration, Paris in the 1840's. The bold modern spirit of two Romantic geniuses is revealed in this visionary twenty-first century production. The piano recital reinvented: a unique dialogue between poetry and music through lighting, video and live performance. Rothenberg's original productions have been called "ingenious," (Washington Post) "intelligent and illuminating" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) and "exceptionally thoughtful" (New York Times).
