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.

Dueling Strings

Santa Cecelia Orchestra

This superb concert features a double dose of talent: Santa Cecilia Orchestra Concertmaster Yi-Huan Zhao performs on violin beside a guest violist. Enjoy the magnificent display of talent from this gifted duo as they perform Halvorsen’s beautiful Passacaglia on an original theme by Handel. In Halvorsen’s composition, Handel’s theme blossoms into a number of separate variations, some lyrical and expressive, others explosively virtuosic. The evening also includes duets composed by Mozart, Shcherbokov’s Kanzone for two violins, and Divertimento by Austrian composer Ernst Toch for violin and viola.
