New friends, new music!

Coming up next week I will perform a new recital program entitled "Four Centuries- Sonatas". At my November 4th recital at the Northbrook Public Library I will present this program with some discussion about what the definition of Sonata is, and what are the common attributes of a sonata or sonata form. The works I will play span four centuries, hence the title. For openers I will start with two Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti- each a little gem! This will be followed by two fairly famous sonatas- Beethoven's "Waldstein" Sonata, and Chopin's "Funeral March" Sonata. The end of the recital will conclude with a brand new Piano Sonata dedicated to me by my friend, composer Aaron Alter. 

Why did I select these specific sonatas to perform together, you may ask? Come to the recital on November 4th at 3pm to find out!~
