Conrad Tao, piano and Caleb Teicher, tap dance [CONCERT] Online
This not-to-be-missed evening is the product of a brilliant partnership of two rapidly rising stars. The admirable pianist and composer Conrad Tao is a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist who galvanized New York Philharmonic audiences as the soloist in his Everything Must Go. Caleb Teicher is Dance Magazine’s Best Emerging Choreographer, with compelling recent works cited in The New York Times rundown of Best Dance of 2018. Each earns raves for electric performances; together, they are astonishing in Counterpoints, a program of music and dance both composed and improvised. Dancing to J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, “Teicher slaps the pallets with lightning speed, leaping from one to the other for contrast, matching Tao, note for accelerated note." (NPR Music). Teicher’s comment captures the essence of their collaboration: “…it's hard to sense where the music starts and the dancing ends, or where the dancing starts and the music ends. They're just one."
