The last concert of the season was last night at San Pablo Catholic Church. Frederick Moyer gave the best performance of the season, in my opinion. One highlight was Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. You just had to be there to experience it. After the intermission, he wowed the audience with Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. I can assure you that he got a rousing standing ovation for that.
I took this picture while he was playing Mozart’s Variations (on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star). Notice the screen? Moyer invented this. He has a camera aimed at the keyboard. A projector, on the tripod, puts the picture on a piece of white plastic that sticks to the piano via static. He can safely put it on any piano. Everyone can clearly see his hand flying over the keyboard. Even me, in the back row.
Here is a closer look at his screen.
Don’t miss him if you ever hear of him playing on a piano near you!
