Pianist Haskell Small is a master of technique, and he's particularly interested in performing music that's on the quiet side — chock full of mystical empty space. They always say it's the notes you don't play that really count, and that's what Small specializes in. See a show from his Journeys in Silence tour this Saturday for free at the Benedictine Grange in Redding, in which he'll perform Frederico Mompou's spare, inwardly-searching work "Musica Callada." And please remember to turn your phone ringers off for this one.
