Schubert on the Bluff: Concert VIII - Piano Duet I (Grand Duo)
- PNC Recital Hall, Mary Pappert School of Music
2:30 p.m. Pre-concert
David Allen Wehr visits with soprano Sari Gruber.
3:00 p.m. Concert
Schubert wrote an enormous amount of music for piano duet (four hands at one piano), much of it inspired and almost all of it rarely performed. Cynthia Raim and David Allen Wehr continue their exploration of this valuable corner of the repertoire in this program with three works: the symphonic Grand Duo, the graceful Rondo in A Major and the stormy Allegro in A Minor (Life's Torments). They also perform Copland's witty Danzon Cubano for two pianos, and the program is filled out with Schubert's lovely "By the Stream", a song with French horn and piano.
