The point of a masterclass is personal contact. No Longer, perhaps…
On April 26, Dr. Edisher Sivitski will conduct a live piano master class with University of Alabama students assembled in Tuscaloosa—from New York City, more than 1,000 miles away.
As Dr. Savitski performs on a Yamaha DCFX Disklavier PRO concert grand piano in New York City, a similarly equipped instrument on stage at the school’s Moody Concert Hall will recreate, in real time, his exact performance – the piano’s keys and pedals moving up and down to capture the subtlest nuance. At the same time, students will be able to watch Dr. Savitski’s live performance on a big screen TV, with the video perfectly in sync with the piano on stage.
