The Wallis Presents


Oct 29 - Nov 19 | 05:00 PM


Reena Esmail's Piano Trio blurs the lines between Indian and Western classical music. Over four weeks, each broadcast will feature one of the chamber work’s four movements with comments by the artists, who last appeared together live at The Wallis in February 2020.
Esmail’s Piano Trio was commissioned by Town Music Seattle and premiered on November 25, 2019 in Seattle, Washington. Regarding the work, she says, “My musical world is influenced as much by the Western canon as it is by Hindustani (North Indian) classical music and each movement of this trio is a confluence of Hindustani and Western musical elements. Imagine if you could say a single sentence, but it could be understood simultaneously in two different languages – that is what I aim to create through my music.”
