Featured works: "Point Conception (for nine pianos);" "NightBreaker (for four pianos)." Performed by: Arlene Dunlap (piano), Bryan Pezzone (piano). "Point Conception is Lentz's wild nine-piano tribute to the octave. It amasses and bubbles over with incessant streams of octaves (harmonic and melodic) that run the length of the keyboard. Through a 'cascading echo system,' long-time Lentz Ensemble pianist Arlene Dunlap performs all of its parts. Presented with 'Point Conception' is Lentz's previously unrecorded 'NightBreaker,' a kaleidoscopic and explosive tour de force for four pianos. An exciting roller-coaster of a work, it ambles, jumps, careens, pauses, and flings itself forward. Through overdubbing, noted Los Angeles pianist Bryan Pezzone performs all of 'NightBreaker''s parts. Both pieces revel in and comment on the conventions of late-19th-century harmony and harmonic motion."
