Piano by Nature Concert Series
Daniel Linder, Solo Piano Recital
Sunday, December 16th, 3:00pm
Piano by Nature presents a special piano recital by Daniel Linder, a former student known to them throughout his years at Westport Central School. After graduating from WCS in 2007, Dan attended Northwestern University and the University of Arizona before relocating to Los Angeles to complete a Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance at the University of Southern California. He currently teaches piano performance and literature at the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music.
Dan is excited to return to Westport to share his final doctoral degree recital in the studio of his former teacher and mentor, Dr. Rose Chancler. The program will include a combination of Classical masterworks and twentieth-century pieces. After opening with Mozart’s Sonata in D Major, K. 311, he will perform Chopin’s imposing Sonata in B Minor, Op. 58, composed near the end of Chopin’s short life. The second half will include Berg’s Piano Sonata, Op. 1, an early modern masterwork composed in 1909, and Piano Set I by American composer Daniel Asia. Dan recently performed Asia’s piece at the University of Arizona Music + Festival 2018, and the recording is available to view on YouTube: https://youtu.be/6Cf0Ga41aVI.
Dan will introduce each piece on the program with a short talk. All are welcome!
