American Piano Quartet plans Sept. 25 recital

The Brigham Young University School of Music will present the American Piano Quartet in concert Tuesday, Sept. 25, in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322 or byuarts.com/tickets. Tickets are $6.

The American Piano Quartet is comprised of faculty artists from the School of Music, including Robin Hancock, Scott Holden and Jeffrey Shumway. They will be joined by Del Parkinson, professor of piano at Boise State University.

In addition, the BYU Piano Quartet — including student artists Michelle Papenfuss, Lue Tobler, Benjamin Wally and Lucy Williams — will also perform during the evening.

The concert will open with the Waltz from “Faust” by Charles Bounod, followed by the “Rakoczy March” by Franz Liszt and the Waltz Suite op. 8 by Mortiz Moszkowski.

The BYU Piano Quartet will then perform “Rondo” by Bedrich Smetana and “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Rimsky-Kosakov.

After a brief intermission, the American Piano Quartet will present “Espana” by Emmanuel Chabrier, “Pavanne,” op. 50 by Gabriel Faure and “Les Preludes” by Franz Liszt.

They will conclude the performance with “Semper Fidelis” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Philip Sousa.

The American Piano Quartet was formed in 1984 after former BYU piano faculty member Paul Pollei received a piece of music for a piano quartet. The resulting concert was so well-received that they decided to continue as a group and have since performed around the world.
