Pianist and Cal Poly Music Department Chair W. Terrence Spiller will give a benefit recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 12, in the Spanos Theatre.
The first half of Spiller’s program features works by Robert Schumann and Frédéric Chopin, both of whom were born in 1810. The concert begins with Schumann’s “Papillons” (“Butterflies”), Op. 2, and is followed by his “Abegg” Variations, Op. 1
Next on the program will be three works by Chopin: “Two Waltzes,” Op. 69, and “Ballade in G Minor,” Op. 23.
The second half explores impressionistic and coloristic writing in three early 20th-century compositions, starting with Claude Debussy's set of three pieces, “Estampes” (“Prints”). American composer Amy Beach’s “Hermit Thrush at Morn,” Op. 92, No.2, follows, and the program concludes with Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera’s popular “Danzas Argentinas” (“Argentine Dances”), Op. 2.
