  • Faculty Recital: Paul Orgel presents the music of F. Joseph Haydn
    7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Music Building Recital Hall

    “I prefer him.” –Sviatoslav Richter.

    Haydn was, of course, classical music’s tireless inventor, the Benjamin Franklin of composers; founding father of the String Quartet, Piano Trio, Symphony, and to an extent, the Piano Sonata, Mass, and Oratorio. His final works in all of these genres are his best; the freest, the most expansive and technically accomplished, and most generously expressive in slow music and fast. Pianist Paul Orgel’s all-Haydn program features the early, intriguing Sonata in G Minor, his last three, large-scale piano sonatas, (E-flat, D, and E-flat Major) and the unexpectedly impassioned F Minor Variations. “When I play Haydn’s music, I feel I’m having a wide-ranging, sometimes intimate conversation with the wittiest possible companion. Please come and be part of it!”

    Free and open to the public.
