Robin Hancock, a member of the piano faculty at the Brigham Young University School of Music, will present a recital titled “Classics for Piano and Ballet” with his daughter, dancer Holly Hancock Christensen, Wednesday, July 17, at 5:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.
The family will be assisted in the performance by guest artist Samuel Fulk, a professional dancer at the Utah Regional Ballet Company. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
The program will begin with the Chaconne in D minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, which was transcribed for piano left hand alone by Johannes Brahms. Christensen will perform choreography by using her right foot alone.
The performance will continue with “Die Erlkönig” by Franz Schubert, “Three Etudes” by Frederic Chopin, “Clair de lune" from Suite Bergamasque No. 3 by Claude Debussy and the pas de deux from “Sleeping Beauty” by Peter Tchaikovsky featuring Christensen and Fulk.
