Richès Dayiti: Treasures of Haitian Piano Music will allow Miamians to discover the beauty of Haitian piano music, a repertoire unknown to all but a handful of scholars for the last century. The performances’ compositions have been preserved by the Société de recherche et de diffusion de la musique haïtienne (SRDMH) (Society for the Research and Diffusion of Haitian Music) in Montreal, archived by the Laboratory of World Music Research of the Université de Montréal, and prepared into performance editions by Dr. Robert Grenier of SC State University, who will introduce the music with spoken remarks. Pianist Marianne Parker will perform the program, bringing to life the fruits of decades of scholarly work.
The program will include romantic and modernist works by Emile Desamours, Ludovic Lamothe (known as “Black Chopin”), Edmond Saintonge, and Carmen Brouard.
