Called “One of the busiest and most versatile pianists in town” and an “all around go-to new music specialist” by the LA Times, wild Up’s pianist/keyboardist Richard Valitutto is situated at the bustling intersection of LA’s classical and contemporary music scenes.
For this installment of wild Up’s WORK series, Richard has devised a program that features his diverse creative activities as piano soloist, composer, arranger, chamber musician, and curator. His recent compositions and arrangements will share the stage with music by personally inspiring composers, and he will be joined by fellow wild Up members as gnarwhallaby and Aperture Duo, and guest soprano Justine Aronson.
