Jay KrasnowThe Fine Arts Department is pleased to present a recital of rare piano works by Franz Liszt and others given by pianist Jay Krasnow on October 18th, 2008 at 4PM. The recital will take place on the 3rd floor lobby of Main Library (Fine Arts and Special Collections) and will last approximately an hour. This recital is free and open to all ages!


In late 2006, Mr. Krasnow commenced a series of recitals of rare late-period piano works by Ferenc (Franz) Liszt and his Hungarian colleagues from the 1860's onward. Some of the pieces bear the influence of ‘gypsy' (Hungarian ‘cigany') folk songs and dances and/or may not have been recorded, published, or even performed until the early 1990s at earliest.  One such performance may well have been the US premiere of the complete cycle of ‘studies for the left hand alone' by count Géza Zichy, a friend of Liszt. 

Please join us on October 18th, 2008 for a wonderful afternoon of piano music!
