Rafael Liebich to Perform an Electric Mix of Modern Music
Pianist brings musicians and electroacoustic media together in this vibrant concert
El Camino College faculty artist Rafael Liebich will bring an electric selection of 20th and 21st century music for piano to the Campus Theatre at 8 p.m. Jan. 30.
Liebich will be joined by guest musicians Alex Russell on the violin and Aron Kallay on piano, along with a blend of electroacoustic media that will take the audience through a world of soundscapes rarely brought to the traditional concert hall. The program will include works from James Correa, Isaac Schankler, Tom Flaherty, David Kim-Boyle, Michelle Agnes, David Werfelmann and a world premiere by Alexander Elliott Miller.
A native of Brazil, Liebich started his music studies when he was 6 years old and completed intensive training as a chamber musician as a university student. After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Brazil, he moved to California and earned a doctorate in piano performance from USC. In addition to performing with various ensembles and concert series throughout the state, Liebich teaches piano and is an active scholar. His endeavors in alternative keyboard literature with electroacoustic media led to performances with MicroFest (a microtonal music festival) in Los Angeles, the What's Next? Ensemble, the Jacaranda concert series, and he is currently the assistant director of the "People Inside Electronics" concert series.
