Drury will highlight Frederic Rzewski’s masterpiece, The People United Will Never Be Defeated. This piece, 36 variations on a Chilean revolutionary song, cycles kaleidoscopically through every style of piano playing in music history, from Bach-style counterpoint to pointillism and from stride piano to free improvisation. Wildly virtuosic, it is regarded as one of the greatest piano works of the last 50 years.
