W. Terrence Spiller Piano Recital

W. Terrence Spiller Piano RecitalPianist and Cal Poly Music Department Chair W. Terrence Spiller will give a recital to benefit the Music Department Scholarship Fund.

The first half of Spiller’s program will feature works by three distinctly different composers: J.S. Bach, Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel and Béla Bartok. The first work is one of Bach’s most popular suites, the “English Suite in G Minor,” BWV 808.

The second work is the poetic “Notturno,” by Mendelssohn-Hensel, Felix Mendelssohn’s brilliant and prodigiously talented sister. The first half will close with Bartok’s early 20th-century work, “15 Hungarian Peasant Songs.”

The second half explores works by Sergei Rachmaninov, all of which have a connection to his close friend, the great Viennese violinist Fritz Kreisler. The first work is the monumental “Variations on a Theme of Corelli.” Dedicated to Kreisler, this work’s theme is the iconic tune, “La Folia.” The concert recital closes with transcriptions by Rachmaninov of two short character pieces by Kreisler: “Liebesfreud” (“Love’s Sorrow”) and “Liebeslied” (“Love’s Joy”).
