Notes & Reviews:

For nearly 200 years, the piano's design has been exactly the same - consisting of seven sets of twelve keys which are arranged by pitch. Beyond Twelve is a project that uses state-of-the-art physical modeling technology to break free from these constraints and open up a new world of musical possibilities. Here, concert pianist Aron Kallay premieres new works from eight of America's most visionary composers, unified by their use of a keyboard that has been re-tuned and/or re-mapped in various ways. Kallay, who has been described by Fanfare magazine as "a multiple threat: a great pianist, brainy tech wizard, and visionary promoter of a new musical practice," is a faculty member at both the University of Southern California and Chapman University.
