Judith Shatin's Fantasy on St. Cecilia for solo piano will be performed
by Gayle Martin Henry on Thursday, November 13 at 7:30 PM at the Yamaha
Piano Salon; 689 5th Avenue (at 54th Street) in Manhattan.
Presented by the American Liszt Society, New York Chapter, this concert
will also feature John Field's Nocturne in A Major, Respighi's Notturno,
and nocturnes by Chopin and Liszt. The pianist will also perform
selections by Schumann/Liszt and Wagner/Liszt.
Fantasy on St. Cecilia is a solo piano rethinking of Ms. Shatin's The
Passion of St. Cecilia, for piano and orchestra. Ms. Martin Henry had
premiered The Passion of St. Cecilia with the Charlottesville University
and Community Orchestra and recorded the work for the composer's Piping
the Earth CD. The solo piano work was commissioned and premiered by Ms.
Martin Henry at the Phillips Collection, in Washington D.C, a
performance the Washington Post called, 'unique and riveting'.
