PULLMAN -Pianist Robert Holm will present a recital at WSU’s Kimbrough Concert Hall at 8 p.m. Sept. 21.
Admission is free. The program will include Barcarolle, Op. 65, by Frederic Chopin; Symphonic Etudes by Robert Schumann; and the 1853 Sonata in B Minor by Franz Liszt.
A fourth work entitled Rendezvous, by contemporary American composer Owen Middleton, will also be performed. Rendezvous is a chamber piece for piano, trumpet and bass voice.
It tells the story of an old soldier who visits what was once a battlefield, but is now a beautiful park of trees, grass and rolling hills. He remembers the horrendous battle decades before in which he lost many comrades and his best friend.
Joining Holm for this piece will be WSU music faculty members David Turnbull, trumpet, and John Weiss, bass.
Robert Holm was a finalist in the December 2003 International Franz Liszt Competition in Grottammare, Italy.
He was also a finalist at the 2002 International Bartók-Kabalevsky-Prokofiev Competition, and Third Prize winner at the 1997 International Beethoven Piano Sonata Competition.
