richard valitutto performs an all-day virtual house concert, a livestream lasting from LA’s sunrise to sunset. He marks the passing hours in pianistic solitude — playing music of long durations and gentle contemplation, full of silences, simplicity, and quietude. Featuring works by Ann Southam (Simple Lines of Enquiry), Federico Mompou (Música callada), Valentin Silvestrov (Silent Songs), Alvin Curran (Inner Cities), and many others.
