“Homenatge” commissioned by the Foundation for Iberian Music performed again (and again and again)

Adam Kent just performed “Homenatge” by Tania León, the composition commissioned by the Foundation for Iberian Music in 2011.  The piece was featured on “Between the Keys” with Jed Distler on February 14 2023 on WWFM. The program will be re-aired in the future and it may continue to be available for streaming. There’s an interview with pianist Adam Kent, in which the commission is discussed.  The program also features Kent’s recording of Ernesto Halffter’s music recording and a voluptuous version of Manuel de Falla’s Fantasia Baetica by Paul Jacobs.

“Homenatge” has been performed many times by Adam Kent including at Carnegie Hall and has been choreographed by Dance Theatre of Harlem and staged as such many times.

Just recently (10/16/2023) CUNY faculty pianist by faculty pianist Thomas Sauer performed HOMENTAGE at our own Elebash Recital to great success. 

Our colleague Tania León, of course, is an emerita at The City University of NY, a Pulitzer prize winner,  Grammy nominated, and Kennedy Center Honoree.
