Faculty Select Series Presents Anthony Weinstein on October 1

September 25, 2014

The DePauw University School of Music’s Faculty Select Series continues Wednesday, October 1, with a solo performance by pianist Anthony Weinstein, director of the School’s Accompanying Center. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Thompson Recital Hall, located within DePauw's Green Center for the Performing Arts.

The program includes two large 19th-century works: Franz Schubert’s Sonata in B-flat Major, written only a few months before the composer’s death at the age of thirty-one, and Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures from an Exhibition” dedicated to the artist Viktor Hartmann, who died suddenly, also at a young age and before his life’s work could be fully realized. Originally written for piano and later arranged for orchestra, it would become Mussorgsky’s most famous composition.

Weinstein, who will play a Steinway for Wednesday’s performance, has been a member of the School of Music faculty since 2009. He will complete his Doctor of Music degree in piano performance at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music this year.

General admission tickets to Faculty Select concerts are $5. Tickets for seniors, children and all students are free thanks to season sponsors Judson and Joyce Green. Audience members who respond by September 30 can receive admission to the entire Green Guest Artist and School of Music season for only $75 with the purchase of an All-Access Pass.
