PROGRAM CHANGE – DECEMBER 10:
PETER SERKIN STEPS IN WITH SOLO RECITAL
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 14, 2016
On December 10, 2016, Peter Serkin offers an exciting mix of composers in works that together provide a rich tapestry of works centuries apart. Though their names may be unfamiliar or new to some, Josquin, Sweelinck, Bull, Dowland and Byrd are all eminent and significant 16th-century composers. As Anthony Tommasini recently mentioned in the New York Times, Mr. Serkin has been in the vanguard of “inquisitive artists with a knack for juxtaposing old and new works on imaginative programs.” We are privileged that this brilliant pianist brings his passionate love for all music to 92Y. Pianist Julia Hsu, originally scheduled to appear in a duo recital with Mr. Serkin, is regretfully unable to perform.
