This project currently consists of selected compositions for solo piano by John Starosta, as performed and discussed by pianist Anatoly Larkin, throughout venues across the US. After each performance, audience members are invited to discuss the work with the composer and performer, thereby providing a unique educational opportunity in context. This presentation is approximately 1 hour in length and is best suited for halls that seat between 50 and 350, to create a more intimate atmosphere between the presentation and the audience.
StarLarkPrim (project in progress)
Improvisational performance project that involves a composer (Starosta), a pianist (Larkin), and a painter
(Prim). The project consists of each artist feeding information to the other by means of music and art. The composer is influenced by the art being painted. He transmits harmonies and motivic gestures to the pianist, who then improvises on those motives. The artist paints as he is influenced by the music. This performance lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, with three 5 minute breaks for audience discussion and participation. The end result is a recorded, improv-based composition and painting.
