Description

Celebrate the richness and abundance of the season on Sunday, November 19 at 2 PM as ARCA presents TWO international grand prize winning pianists described as irresistible” by Fanfare Magazine – CYNTHIA RAIM and DAVID ALLEN WEHR“two gifted artists egging each other on to ever higher levels of musicianship, virtuosity and sheer fun.”

ARCA favorite, David Allen Wehr, is joined on Lincoln Hall’s Steinway in “One Piano – 4 Hands” by his piano partner Cynthia Raim, whom ARCA’s audience will remember from their two piano duo concert in Lincoln Hall in 2012 featuring music from their Rachmaninoff CD Suites for Two Pianos. In a combination of solo piano and four hand works at one piano by Schubert and Debussy, they will inspire with the subtlety of their collaborative nuances and virtuosity.

Duet repertoire will include Debussy’s charming Petite Suite, Schubert’s dark and passionate Fantasy in F Minor and brilliant Variations on an Original Theme. Solo works by Debussy will be performed by both pianists, including Estampes (Engravings), a three-movement international musical trio, including Pagodas (Asia), Evening in Granada (Spain) and Gardens in the Rain (France) – and Children’s Corner, Debussy’s loving musial diary of a day in the life of his four-year-old daughter Chouchou.

Of their CD of Brahms Waltzes, Opus 39 and 21 Hungarian dances, the American Record Guide wrote, “Raim and Wehr offer such luscious performances that they fill one’s soul with sheer joy. Absolutely gorgeous sound, this disc is a must have.” And in Fanfare magazine, “Overwhelming Èlan… Raim and Wehr are irresistible.”

Their Rachamaninoff Suites for 2 Pianos was named Best Record of the Year 1998 by the American Record Guide: Atmospheric and enthralling…One would have to go back to the days of Bauer and Gabrilowitsch to find two-piano playing of this caliber. But why bother when there are pianists like Raim and Wehr around. Grab this disc; it doesn’t get any better than this! Record of the Year 1998″
