A composition over ten years in the making, Leigh Howard Stevens channels inspiration from the world’s greatest escape artist to create a piece reminiscent of a film-noir score. The piece uses “musical illusions,” including what the composer calls “faux motion,” where a distinct melody is heard, but the hands don’t move. Despite Houdini tragically dying from a “trick gone wrong,” Houdini’s Last Trick will breathe life and excitement into your recital program.
