Also on the program will be work by 20th-century tango composer Astor Piazzolla, Romantic-era firebrand Robert Schumann, and 20th-century Spanish cellist and composer Gaspar Cassado. Min Kwon, the director of the Mason Gross School of the Arts keyboard program and a resident of Harding, studied piano at the elite Curtis Institute in Philadelphia as a teenager and received her doctorate degree from Juilliard. Along with a career in education that includes the founding of a music academy, the Center for Musical Excellence, in New York City, she remains active as a performer. Her CD of Schubert and Liszt was praised by critics. The two will perform arrangements of several waltzes and an etude by Chopin, a composer who wrote almost exclusively for piano solo. These pieces are familiar parts of the repertoire, making the idea of writing transcriptions daunting. The idea of taking a work written for one instrument and arranging it for another, or for a group, has a long history in classical music. Bach and Mozart both arranged and re-arranged existing work to suit the circumstances, often yielding startling revelations. They also show off the individual melodic lines of the fugues, which can be more difficult to hear when played on a single instrument. The performance will begin at Feb.
