Ravel, Dvorak & Mozart – Piano for Four Hands
February 22, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
“Piano Four Hands” (duets for two players sitting side-by-side at one keyboard) were a staple of chamber music a century ago, with works by many mainstream composers specifically in this style. Virtuoso international pianists Harumi Makiyama and Rie Ando team up at the piano to bring this repertoire back to life.
The program features one of Maurice Ravel’s most famous works, the lovely impressionistic suite “Ma Mère l’Oye,” plus a Mozart sonata and selections from Dvorák’s Slavonic Dances.
Pianist Dr. Harumi Makiyama’s international appearances include Benaroya Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, the Tokyo Bunkakaikan, and the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival in Bonefro, Italy. She received her doctoral degree in piano performance at the University of Washington.
Pianist Dr. Rie Ando has performed in Poland, Japan, California, and Washington. She studied piano at the Toho Gakuen School of Music, Western Washington University, and the University of Washington. Besides solo performing, Dr. Ando studied opera-accompanying with legendary Italian Opera coach Maestro Ubaldo Gardini for three years.
Because of an exhibit in our usual gallery, this concert will be held in another slightly more intimate gallery. There will be somewhat fewer seats available, so we suggest you please reserve your seats now.
Come early and tour the art exhibits (included in your admission), enjoy the concert surrounded by fine art, and have time to dine out after.
We are now sold out of tickets for the Piano for Four Hands concert. We apologize for the inconvenience. Tickets for the next Music in the Museum program will go on sale the evening of February 22nd, after the performance.
