MRU Conservatory presents composer/pianist Peter Jancewicz in recital with violinist Frank Ho and pianist Susan Hlasny. The program will include the premiere of Peter’s “Sonata for Violin and Piano”, a dramatic three-movement work inspired by the conflict, sorrow, and hope for resolution and peace that is so much a part of life.
In addition, Susan and Peter will play his piano duet “Red Coat”, a piece in three movements drawing on the blues, film noir, minimalism, and an hommage to Keith Jarrett. Rounding out the program will be the Violin Sonata by Aaron Copland, written in 1943, and some lovely music for violin and piano by Mozart: the Adagio in E K261 and the Rondo in G K. 250.
7:30 p.m. in the TransAlta Pavilion
