Bax and Chung | March 9 and 10, 2014

On March 9 and 10, the virtuoso pianists Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung applied four agile hands to the Music Room's Steinway, with impressive results. Their dance-themed program included Igor Stravinsky's own arrangement of his complete ballet Pétrouchka; 16 Waltzes, op. 39, by Johannes Brahms; and Four Tangos by Astor Piazzolla, arranged by the artists. The evening opened with The Hebrides overture by Felix Mendelssohn. The Friends of Music season concluded on April 6 and 7 with a concert by the Baroque ensemble REBEL.
