Bruce Robinson Pianist – A Benderly Concert Event

May 21, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Our final concert of the season is a bookend to the first concert in Nov 2022 when we showcased the 1881 Blüthner piano, graciously donated to the Foundation by Torry and Sandy Johnson. The program which features works by Bach, Donizetti and Tchaikowsky transcribed by Liszt and Rachmaninov, includes the rarely heard Lezghinka, a transcendental etude by Sergei Lyapunov. What a marvelous opportunity to hear the authentic sounds of a bygone era, superbly presented by a gifted pianist. A reception will follow in the courtyard.


Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), transcribed for piano by Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943): Prelude from E Major Violin Partita Sonata

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): Sonata No. 31 in A Flat Major, Op. 110

Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848), transcribed for piano by Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Reminiscences of Lucia di Lammermoor

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), transcribed for piano by Sergei Rachmaninoff: Lullaby

Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921), transcribed for piano by Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938):

The Swan, from Carnival of the Animals
