BYU's American Piano Quartet, guest artists plan March 21 concert

The American Piano Quartet, Brigham Young University's professional four-man two-piano ensemble, will be joined by two guest piano quartets in a performance Tuesday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are $9 or $6 with a BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Tickets Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit performances.byu.edu.

The quartet consists of BYU School of Music faculty artists Robin Hancock, Scott Holden, Paul Pollei and Jeffrey Shumway.

The highlights of the evening include the premiere of a new Mack Wilberg arrangement, "Les Contes d'Offenbach," two pieces arranged by members of the Quartet and two young piano quartets.

The American Piano Quartet will perform Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Procession of the Nobles" from "Malada," arranged by Hancock, and Bach's Fugue in D Major for Organ, BWV 532, arranged by Holden.

A guest piano quartet consisting of Ree Lu, Jim Lu, Victor Yu and Kento Young will perform Moritz Moszkowski's Spanish Dance, op. 12. No. 1 with the American Piano Quartet. The BYU ensemble will also be joined by another young quartet, including Sienna Bussio, Haley Hansen, Laurie Haupt and Kenton Young, in a performance of Smetana's Rondo in C Major.

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