Sara Davis Buechner, piano

Wolfgang Mozart: Fantasy and Sonata in C Minor KV 465/457
Frederic Chopin: Introduction and Rondo in E flat major, op. 16
Anton Arensky: Four Salon Pieces
George Gershwin, arranged for spolo piano by Sara Davis Buechner: Rhapsody no. 2.

The Baruch Performing Arts Center presents the visionary pianist Sara Davis Buechner in recital on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:30 pm. Admission is free, and reservations (available at BPAC's website) are required. Lauded for her "intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess" by the New York Times, Buechner performs works by Gershwin, Mozart, Chopin, and Arensky.
The program features Buechner's own transcription of George Gershwin's Second Rhapsody. "You can't get any more Manhattan in your ears than in the Second Rhapsody, which Gershwin conceived of as a "Rhapsody in Rivets", says Buechner. Gershwin developed the work from passages he wrote for a surreal New York dream sequence in a musical, and it became a sequel to his signature work, Rhapsody in Blue. The program also includes Fantasy and Sonata in C minor K 475/457 by Mozart, which he composed at the peak of his international success. Chopin's Introduction and Rondo in E flat major, op. 16 and Four Salon Pieces by Anton Arensky round out this program.

About “Liaisons I: The Schumanns & Brahms”:
Passionate and tragic, complex and mysterious, the bond between these three great musical personalities was marked by mutual admiration and ardent support. During a time of fervent conflict between absolute and program music, their friendship formed the center of a stronghold in defense of the aesthetic values of pure music.
