Award Winning Steinway artist Improvising Pianist Randy Klein is a master improviser. The music he creates in site specific performances takes the listener on a journey of beauty and self discovery. It is truly a one of a kind event.
Imagine - you walk into a space. It appears the same as it always has been. You ignore the walls, the floors, the ceiling. Then imagine - a beautiful resonance of sound that begins to captures you. Then a change of light envelops the way the space appears and feels. Imagine - the feeling of an undiscovered sense of peace.
Ambient Spaces is structured to elicit a visceral and entertaining experience for audiences. It is a universal form that is loved by all and all ages.

The improvisation, titled Playing Goodbye, played in the rotunda at the old Steinway Hall on 57th Street was informed by the echo that existed in the 60 foot rotunda. The sound of the space enlarged the sound of the piano. The reverberation that took place off of the rotunda ceiling bounced back to extend the sound of the instrument. You can hear from the opening notes of the improvisation that there was a merger of the improvisation to the space.
Times Square - Playing In The Din, Playing With The Din
Playing in the din, Playing with the din is an experiment of playing a piano that is not in the best condition along with and against the continuous explosion of sound that one hears in Times Square. A perfect example of collaborating with the environment.

The non-stop hustle and bustle of the intersection at 57th Street and 6th Avenue in New York City provides the impetus for this exciting improvisation.
