A muse lies outstretched on a grand piano, her fingers exploring the keys. Musical instruments play a special part in our memories for many of us, taking us back to childhood and pivotal moments in our lives. In this visual presentation, the appearance of a musical instrument ushers in the auditory and tactile senses. To me, the black curtain behind an onstage piano cordons off a microcosm for the brief interlude of a concert in our otherwise cacophonic world. I can’t think of anything more fitting to top this majestic instrument than a kindred lover of music. The title is a whimsical mash-up of the predecessor name of the piano and the Italian word for “nude.”
