Murray Perahia program announced

The blog is back! It actually never went away, but I did -- extensive travels over the summer and into the fall (more on that later).

The great news of Murray Perahia's recital program has broken my blog log-jam.

Just today I've learned that for his Sunday, March 22 '09 recital program, he'll perform Bach's Partita No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830; Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 15 in D major, Op. 28, "Pastoral"; and Brahms's Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24 -- a beautiful program which I'm tremendously eager to hear him play.

Mr. Perahia also is giving a master class at Spivey Hall on Saturday, March 21 '09, and we're receiving applications of pianists who wish to participate (deadline for receipt of applications: Friday, Feb. 20 '09). Music-lovers, piano teachers, aspiring pianists, and people who just wish to come, listen and learn may also attend -- see the Spivey Hall website for details.

We are immensely proud to be welcoming Murray Perahia back to Spivey Hall. His master class and recital promise to be great highlights of the season.

Thanks, Yvonne. Like so many bloggers say, it's easier to blog when you don't attempt to write about too much at once. I'm trying (again) to follow this dictum and keep the blog fresh and up-to-date. Spivey Hall's 2008-2009 season is off to a great start, and there's much in store in the coming months...people, ideas and music rich with blog-post potential. I hope readers will chime in with their comments.
