DJ Velvet Einstein had the very special pleasure of speaking with Russian pianist/composer, Anton Batagov, and Taiwanese keyboardist, Jenny Lin, during the recent Philip Glass festival at the SFJazz Center. Tune in on Saturday, August 11th @ 4PM to hear both Batagov & Lin discuss their respective performances of Glass’s Piano Etudes and how Glass provided feedback on their interpretations.
Anton Batagov is one of the most influential Russian musicians of our time. As a performer, Batagov introduced the music of John Cage, Morton Feldman, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass to Russian audiences.
Jenny Lin is one of the most respected young pianists today, admired for her adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence. She has been acclaimed for her “remarkable technical command and a gift for melodic flow,” by The New York Times.
