USD a key stop for Dutch pianist Marcel Worms US tour
A Dutch pianist, Worms’ program will include selected works from composers such as Federico Mompou and Joaquin Nin-Culmell. In fact, Mompou’s music has been a staple of Worms’ repertoire for several years, especially 2007 which was the 20th anniversary of the composer’s death. He also dazzles audiences with the earthly music of Nin-Culmell, who was the son of Cuban composer Joaquin Nin and a close friend of Mompou’s. Additionally, Worms will perform, “Homage to Mompou,” which was composed by Spanish composer and pianist Elisenda Fabregas, who now resides in Washington, D.C. Prior to his campus recital, Worms will present a master class with USD piano students at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
Worms studied at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam with Hans Dercksen. Following graduation in 1987, Worms continued to study 20th century piano music and chamber music with Alexandre Hrisanide and Hans Broekman. He has also recorded several CDs with music ranging in style from tangos and blues to cutting-edge contemporary selections, including a collection of Spanish and Cuban folk music “Tonadas” to be recorded and released later this year. His visit to The U is part of a short United States tour that includes recitals in Washington, D.C., New York and Alabama later this month.
