"The program explores a wide range of expression, from Bach to the present day. Through brief but illuminating discussion, Jonathan Levin takes you on a journey through 300 hundred years of music which includes a milestone work of western music – Beethoven’s epic Hammerklavier sonata. Other selections include works by Scarlatti, Liszt, Charles Griffes and an original composition by New York based composer Christian Mcleer. This program is to promote the new Clayton Piano Festival in Clayton, NC which will begin in February 2012; a short (<10 minute) talk by the performer about the festival will immediately follow the concert. There will also be a reception with light refreshments."
