Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series at UT kicks off with tribute to Chopin and his love, George Sand

Guest pianist Pamela Howland opens the annual Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series with a special tribute to Frederic Chopin in honor of the 200th anniversary of his birth. Ms. Howland will present a unique recital program, REMEMBERING FRDRIC: A Musical Conversation between Frdric Chopin and George Sand, Sunday, September 26, 2010, at 3 p.m. She will also present a Chopin master class for students, Saturday, September 25 at 10 a.m.

Both the master class and the recital are free and open to the public, and will be held in the University of Toledo Center for Performing Arts Recital Hall.
 
Ms. Howland created the REMEMBERING FRDRIC program as a way to reacquaint the public with the composer and his music by giving them a window on his life, particularly his tortured relationship with Frenchwoman, George Sand. Not everyone can identify with the complexity of his music, but almost everyone has had a difficult love relationship, said Ms Howland. We all wish we could have said one more thing. In a recital that is part staged reading, part play, part concert, Ms. Howland gives Chopin and Sand an opportunity to finish the conversation.

In the show I speak alternately between French, Polish, English, and use the infinite language of Chopins tranquil, ecstatic and poignant music, to conjure Sand as she talks to Chopin six years after his death as she finishes her autobiography. I use Sands own words (as well as some words that Ive given her) to convey the history of their extraordinary relationship; from 1838, when they were lovers; the wildly productive years at Nohant, her country retreat, where she nursed him in his frail health; until 1847, when they split bitterly two years before his death. Chopin responds only through his hands (me at the piano) in the music of his mazurkas, waltzes, preludes and, in his closing remarks, the Nocturne in E Minor.
