Dear Friends!

On Saturday, December 1st, 2018, at 5 p.m., Elena and I warmly invite you to join us for the DAZZLING DANCES for piano four-hands - a special sequel to our Danzas Espanolas program from a year ago, in celebration of the 175th birthday of Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) - a leading Norwegian Romantic composer, conductor, pianist, writer, and humanist. In this kaleidoscopic all-Dance program, we will perform Franz Schubert's exquisite Four Polonaises for piano four-hands, D. 599 (1818), selections from Schumann's colorful Ballszenen ("Ball Scenes") for piano four-hands, op. 109 (1851), including the wistful Walzer and the characterful Mazurka, Brahms's amorous Liebeslieder Waltzes, arr. for piano four-hands, op. 52a (1868) - "love songs" waltzes originally scored for voices and piano four-hands and greatly influenced by Schubert's Viennese Landler, selections from Dvorak's folkloric Slavonic Dances, op. 46 & op. 72 (1878) - spirited pieces full of Czech national character, which launched Dvorak's career and are among the composer's most beloved works of all time, and some of Grieg's most gorgeous treasures for piano four-hands, including his two elegant Waltz-Caprices, op. 37, the enchanting Anitra's Dance from Peer Gynt Suite, and his celebrated Norwegian Dances, op. 35, full of Norwegian folk melodies, piquant harmonies, syncopated rhythms, sparkling virtuosity and dramatic flair. Don't miss this exhilarating showcase of the Dazzling Dances for Piano Four-Hands by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak, and Grieg in tribute to Edvard Grieg's 175th birthday!

Elena and I can't wait to see you all on Saturday, December 1st!
