Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM EDT
Electric Earth Concerts presents fortepianist David Breitman on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the Ahavas Achim Synagogue in Keene, NH. Eminent fortepianist David Breitman is equally at home on the modern piano, and enjoys both solo and ensemble playing. His collaboration with baritone Sanford Sylvan spanned more than thirty years, with several hundred recitals and four CD’s, ranging from Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin, to the premiere recording of The Glass Hammer, a major song cycle by the Cuban-American composer Jorge Martin. He has recorded the Mozart piano-violin sonatas on historical instruments with Jean-François Rivest for Analekta, and, in a collaboration of a different sort, he is one of seven fortepianists on the 10-CD recording of the complete Beethoven piano sonata cycle on CLAVES. Beethoven has continued to be a major preoccupation, with recent recordings of the complete violin sonatas with Elizabeth Wallfisch (for the Nimbus label) and the cello sonatas and variations with Jaap ter Linden (not yet released). His program will include: Six Bagatelles, Op.126, and Sonata in E major, Op. 109 by Ludwig Van Beethoven, and Four Impromptus, Op. 90, by Franz Schubert. Admission to the concert is $25; tickets may be purchased online at www.electricearthconcerts.org or at the door. The contact for this concert is Laura Gilbert, at [email protected] or 646-522-3352. Congregation Ahavas Achim is at 84 Hastings Avenue in Keene, NH 03431.
