Piano Recital at William Andrew Clark Library 1/10/10
January 11, 2010
Committee of Professional Women for Los Angeles Philharmonic had a 45th Anniversary Celebration yesterday, Saturday 1/9, and I was invited to play my piano recital at William Andrew Clark Library at UCLA (please see photos in Photo Section on this homepage). Los Angeles is a very big city, and there are so many wonderful venues for concerts. It was the first time to visit this beautiful and historical library for me, and simply I fell in love with this concert room. Mr. Clark was a founder of LA Phil so this venue was a perfect selection for this celebration.
I have performed for different committees of Los Angeles Philharmonic, and it has been my pleasure to play for them and to meet those wonderful people who support music with their hearts. I had a great time performing in this beautiful music room, and communicating with the audience through music yesterday. Mr. Clark was a big music lover, and this was his passion to have this wonderful music room in his estate. I performed; Granados-Valses poeticos, Piazzolla-contrabajissimo, Mompou-tres canciones y danzas, Rachmaninov-Op. 23 #2 and #5, and Op. 32 #5, Kapustin-Toccatina, Gershwin-Rhapsody in Blue. As always I shared interesting anecdotes with the audience between playing.
I am so fortunate to get those wonderful opportunities to perform. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this celebration!!
