Join Peabody faculty member & pianist Brian Ganz as he hosts a benefit concert at Johns Hopkins Shriver Hall on Tuesday, April 9 at 7pm! All proceeds will benefit the Hopkins Odyssey lifelong learning program.
Brian’s April 9 program will explore the theme of “Small and Infinite” works. Brian will play three mazurkas from Op. 7, the Trois Ecossaises, Op. 72, No. 3, The Lento con Gran Espressione, the Presto con Leggerezza, the Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23, and selections from the Preludes, Op. 28.
The first of the Ballades holds a place of honor in Brian’s heart, as he considers it the piece that inspired him to become a pianist. “It is no exaggeration to say that Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 changed my life,” he said. “I like to say that Chopin ‘wounded’ me with the mysterious, inexplicable beauty of that piece.”
The Johns Hopkins Odyssey program offers noncredit classes to students – of all ages – who have an interest to learn. This program is known as the Baltimore area’s lifelong learning partner. So come out and hear another wonderful performance by Brian, and support a great cause!
