Ferruccio Busoni Fantasia contrappuntistica, for two pianos
Our end-of-July duo recital by Smith College pianists Jiayan Sun and Judith Gordon will be this year's first (of three!) concerts with both of La Grua's exceptional grands. Judith and Jiayan will be playing four-hands on either instrument and duo on both. The gloriously evocative common thread of Johann Sebastian Bach – as composer, as brilliantly transcribed, and as honored in a titanic, compelling two-piano fantasy – unites the afternoon in rare focus and uncommon beauty.
Sun and Gordon play with deep lyricism and remarkable understanding of these extraordinary scores. The fabled La Grua acoustic will do its part, as well. At long last, we'll hear the 1886 Chickering concert grand – fully restored after four years of careful research and attentive voicing – and the 1930 Mason & Hamlin – with new hammers in M&H's lyrical original style – sounding forth together.Tickets $20
