An Evening Ganz Piano Talk

Sept. 26, 2011
Press Release #11-177


St. Mary’s College of Maryland pianist Brian Ganz will conduct one of his popular piano talks at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in Auerbach Auditorium of St. Mary’s Hall. The talks are a series of informal lecture/demonstrations where he plays and discusses composers’ works to take the audience behind the scenes. This one will concern two works of Liszt and, of course, Chopin. Ganz is on a multi-year quest to perform every work of Chopin. The concert is free and open to the public.

“Listeners need not have had any musical training to appreciate the talk,” Ganz said. “Also, since most of my piano talk series take place at noon, this is an opportunity for those who cannot usually make it to a piano talk to do so.”
