About Michael Noble
Michael Noble is a pianist who strives to inspire audiences through ambitious initiatives and illuminating programming. Since his debut at the age of six, he has developed an international reputation as a pianist whose performances have engrossed audiences throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas. His performance at OCC will present Frederic Rzewski’s The People United Will Never Be Defeated!
Based on Sergio Ortega’s protest song ¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido! which became a universal song against injustice. Rzewski’s variations employs a variety of techniques and styles that span the gamut of Western music, from medieval discant to Lisztian virtuosity to improvisatory jazz-like fantasies to mid-20th century variations that evoke Boulez and Glass; the evolution of music itself and the struggles the performer must surmount mirror the evolution of humans and the struggles they must traverse in order to overturn authoritarian regimes.
