Jan 9...Announcement...My next concert is Saturday April 6, 2019, in Berkeley!
The whole second half of the concert is a brand new collection of 8 pieces titled "Crossing Borders: A Contemplation on Deportation."
It is an exploration of the joy of finding a new life, and then the complete despondency of losing that life. It is composed for bandoneon, cello, bass, piano & vocalist.....with the brief appearance of a Tango dancer.
It's going to be an exciting task to bring it all to life, with the addition of projected images and videos.
Also, check out my latest solo piano CD titled Tango en Piano ~ 11 piezas de Astor Piazzolla. listen here!
Plus I've just added recordings I made of:
Shostakovich's Prelude and Fugue op 87 no. 14 in Eb minor, Schubert's Impromtu op 142 no. 1, and Cesar Frank's Prelude, Chorale and Fugue.
Vicki Lee Trimbach ~ Pianist , Composer & Teacher
“I write Classical music for the 21st century...it is melodic and rhythmic.”
— Vicki T.
... and have a look at a list of the music I've composed (up till July 2017) on my ' compositions ' page.
I'm a Classically trained pianist / composer who has studied flamenco dance for 15 years. In the past 2 years I have added classes in Argentinian Tango.
I listen to many types of music, but in particular I like hip hop....I like its clear multi layers, its complexity of rhythms, and its poetry.
When I write music, I'm trying to put rhythms and melodies of our time into instruments and music forms that go back in time....for example, I'll write chamber music for the combination of didjeridu, cello and flute. I have an affinity with the didjeridu....it appears in a number of my compositions.
Most of my music includes a cello. The color and range of the cello make it beautiful to write music for.
Shattered is a 14 minute Dance Drama for cello, didjeridu, piano, tenor and dancer.
This recording is from the premiere at my concert in March 2015.
