Joshua Pierce Presents World Premiere of Complete Edition of Michael
Harrison's Revelation: Music for the Harmonically Tuned Piano - Performance
at New York's Merkin Concert Hall on February 10

The internationally acclaimed and Grammy nominated pianist Joshua Pierce
will present the World Premiere performance of the complete edition of
Michael Harrison's Revelation: Music for the Harmonically Tuned Piano
at Merkin Concert Hall at the Abraham Goodman House, 129 West 67th Street
(near Lincoln Center) in New York City on Thursday, February 10, 2005
at 8:00 PM.  This performance is part of the Interpretations series
presented by The World Music Institute & Thomas Buckner.

Composed for a new "non-tempered" microtonal tuning that Michael
Harrison invented, Revelation is a modern approach to the ancient
principles of pure intonation and harmonic resonance.  The work introduces
never-before-heard combinations of modes, harmonies, and acoustical
phenomenon that have been praised in The New York Times as "a new harmonic
world...  generating huge golden balls of vibrant sound," and in Stuart
Isacoff's new book Temperament as "he seemed to free an angelic choir
above."

Tickets for this performance are $10. For tickets, please contact the
Merkin Hall Box office at (212) 501-3330. For other information, please
call (212) 545-7536 or visit http://worldmusicinstitute.org or

Grammy nominated pianist Joshua Pierce has performed in prestigious music
centers throughout the world as a soloist and with an extraordinary array
of orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonia,
Symphony Orchestra of Russia, Moscow State Philharmonic, Berlin Radio
Symphony Orchestra, and the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra.  He has
recorded nearly 200 works including numerous world premieres as a soloist
and with orchestra for EMI Classics, Carlton Classics, Helicon, Koch
International Classics, MMC, Phoenix, Pro Arts, Sony Classics, Vox and
other labels.  His landmark series of recordings of John Cage's music
on the Wergo label has earned him tremendous acclaim worldwide.  His
25-year collaboration with the pianist Dorothy Jonas, as part of the
two-piano team, Pierce & Jonas, has resulted in numerous acclaimed
recordings and performances, including a command performance with the
Royal Philharmonic for England's Royal Family.  For more information,

Composer and pianist Michael Harrison is one of the world's leading
composers working with just intonation and rational number based tuning
systems as applied to the piano.  His work has been hailed as "an
indisputable landmark in Western tuning's circuitous history" (Kyle Gann,
The Village Voice).  In 1986, he created the "harmonic piano" with the
ability to play up to 24 notes per octave.  As a disciple of La Monte
Young, Harrison prepared all of the specialized tunings for Young's 6-"
hour historical work, The Well-Tuned Piano.  In 1999 Harrison performed
his own epic composition, From Ancient Worlds (New Albion Records), in
Rome at the "Festival 4 Pianoforti." A celebration of America's visionary
composer/pianists, the festival also featured solo performances by Philip
Glass and Terry Riley.  Revelation received its world premiere in 2001
at Germany's prestigious Klavier Festival Ruhr.  In October of the same
year the work was premiered in the U.S.  at Composers Collaborative's
Solo Flights festival at Lincoln Center.  For more information visit
