Feminine Fusion

S4-27: At the Keyboard, Part 3


“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings.  The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”  – Wassily Kandinsky


The colors and emotions a talented pianist can pull from the instrument is amazing.  This episode features women at the keyboard in a variety of roles, from soloist to collaborative pianist.
