Music by Rudolph Ganz and Friends

To celebrate the musical legacy and contributions of Rudolph Ganz (1877-1972), a series of three concerts will take place in 2019. Each concert will have a different program, different performers, and a different location in order to reach new audiences. Collaboration between The Newberry, Chicago College of the Performing Arts of Roosevelt University, the PianoForte Foundation, the Ganz family, sponsors, and donors will ensure a memorable series.

Other composers featured are contemporaries of Ganz and those he knew personally, including Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Béla Bartók, Frank Martin, and Cécile Chaminade.

Performers have been invited to participate and to donate their talents. A variety of artists from students of Ganz to contemporary students in piano, vocal, and instrumental chamber music will perform.
