Metropolis Ensemble presents and hosts a mini-series devoted to pianists at the vanguard of New York’s new music scene, curated in collaboration with pianist David Kaplan. The series features five maverick New York-based pianists with long associations with Metropolis Ensemble, sharing the stage with invited artists making their Metropolis Ensemble debuts.

Timo Andres, David Kaplan, Andrew Hsu and Mika Emily Sasaki pile onto the piano bench to perform music originally for orchestra.
