Music Faculty Artist Series

Lorna Griffitt, piano


Saturday, March 2, 2024, 8 p.m.

Winifred Smith Hall

Professor and pianist Lorna Griffitt will perform a captivating solo recital showcasing a selection of masterful pieces. The program commences with Bach's Toccata in E Minor, a work with four imaginative, highly contrasting and seamlessly performed movements for solo keyboard. The program will continue with Beethoven's Sonata in A Major, Op. 101. This four-movement masterpiece is characterized by its lyrical passages, skillful counterpoint, fantasy elements, and cyclic use of themes, all characteristic of Beethoven's late-period compositions.

The program continues with a delightful array of short works by Thea Musgrave, Frederic Chopin, Clara Schumann, and Robert Schumann. To conclude the recital, Griffitt will perform the sumptuous Rachmaninoff transcription of Fritz Kreisler's Liebesleid.

Join us for an evening of timeless works of great composers that will come alive in the hands of a remarkable pianist.
