** More about the three-concert series **
Recitals will feature Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Contemporary music, including pieces by Rudolph Ganz, some of which have never been recorded commercially and are seldom performed. Other composers featured are contemporaries of Rudolph Ganz and those he knew personally, including Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Béla Bartók, Frank Martin, and Cécile Chaminade.
Invited performers are donating their talents to this project and include students of Rudolph Ganz, contemporary students in piano, vocal, and instrumental chamber music.
Subsequent performances will be at the Newberry Library on Saturday, March 23 at 2:30 p.m., and at PianoForte Studios on Sunday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m. This series is a collaboration among Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts, the Newberry Library, and the PianoForte Foundation, and is made possible, in part, through the support of the Ganz Family and a generous grant from the Swiss Benevolent Society of Chicago.
