Four Hands Piano and Choral Music of Charles Griffin to be Performed in
England on April 26 and Latvia on April 27 and May 3

Four hand piano and choral music of American composer Charles Griffin
will be performed in England and Latvia in the coming week:

Saturday, April 26 at 12:30 PM - The U.K Premiere of From the Faraway
Nearby for piano four-hands by Charles Griffin will be performed by the
London-based Ivory Duo, Natalie Tsaldarakis and Panayotis Archontides
at the historic Waltham Abbey Church in Essex, just 16 miles north of
London, England.

Mr. Griffin's From the Faraway Nearby was inspired by paintings from
the American artist Georgia O'Keeffe.  Originally written in six movements
for two guitars, the suite was recorded by the Goldspiel-Provost Classical
Guitar Duo.  Since the composer rearranged the suite in 2006, it has
been performed by several duos, in Latvia, England and the U.S.  Much

This concert is free and open to the public.  Visit the Ivory Duo at
http://www.natalie-peter.com/homepage.html and Waltham Abbey Church at

Sunday, April 27 at 4 PM and Saturday, May 3 at 6 PM - The women's vocal
ensemble Putni will perform the composer's El Paso de la Seguiriya, a
flamenco-inflected setting of the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca, on
April 27 at The Museum of Decorative Arts & Design, located at 10/20
Skarnu iela in Riga, Latvia and again at St. John's Lutheran Church
in Pinki on May 3, as part of their program 'Spanish Hour'.

The piece was commissioned by Putni, Antra Drege, director, with
funds from the Latvian Culture Capital Fund and premiered in Riga
in October 2007 at the Latvian History Museum.  More about the piece
at http://charlesgriffin.net/archives/86.  Much more about Putni at
