This musical style was the beginning of a modern sound–daring, colorful, and appealing–and Mr. Rovics’s Kurzweil piano is extraordinarily true to life. The instrument also can sound like a guitar ensemble, add subtle string-like warmth, mimic the percussive edge of the marimba, and produce bell-like sounds that ring with color that fascinates the ear.
Mr. Rovics is a highly regarded composer-pianist who is happy to introduce the Bethel community to the music of Debussy on thisamazing instrument!
