As part of an artist-in-residence recording project, pianist Yegor Shevtsov presents an in-progress performance of solo works by two giants of twentieth-century music. Separated by almost a century, Debussy’s Etudes and Boulez’s Incises intersect in both their French heritage and their substantial demands on a pianist’s control and technique. Rounding out the recital is Boulez’s most recent work for solo piano, une page d'éphéméride.
