Description

Poets of the Piano cost is $5. The event is open to the public. RSVP by Sept. 3. Poets of the Piano is a lecture-recital celebrating the magic and poetry of piano music that transcends the instrument. This program explores the evolving art of piano music, as composers tried to express more moods, scenes and characters on the instrument. Behind each great piece is a story that will enrich your experience and open your ears to new possibilities. A 30-minute lecture is followed by a one hour concert featuring music such as The Star-Spangled Banner, Italian Concerto, BWV 971, Variations on a Greek Folk Tune, Four Mazurkas, op.24, Variations on an Ancient Korean Melody, and Spanish Rhapsody.
