BYU-based American Piano Quartet plans Nov. 18 performance

The American Piano Quartet— featuring Brigham Young University faculty artists Jeffrey Shumway, Robin Hancock and Scott Holden with guest artist Paul Pollei — will perform Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

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

The American Piano Quartet will present “An Evening of Dances,” with piano music from different dances, including “Slavonic Dances” by Antonin Dvorak and the famous Hungarian Rhapsody, No. 2 by Franz Liszt.

The program will also include Tarantella, op. 13 by Josef Rheinberger, “España” by Emmanuel Chabrier and the Pavane, op. 50 by Gabriel Faure, arranged by faculty member Hancock.

“We chose music for this program that would be especially enjoyable, because the show will be recorded for broadcast on BYU Television,” said Shumway.

Founded in 1984, the American Piano Quartet has performed several times overseas, including appearances in Japan, Brazil and Europe.

For more information, contact Jeffrey Shumway at (801) 422-4922.
