Dr. Del Parkinson: Trailblazers

Del Parkinson

September 18, 2020

07:30 PM - 09:00 PM

CSI Fine Arts Auditorium

$10/adults, $8/seniors, or $6/students

All Ages

Del Parkinson will perform a piano recital featuring four works that were initially considered startling, but now are some of the most beloved compositions ever written.  These include Beethoven’s “Moonlight” Sonata, Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody #2,” Debussy’s “Clair de lune,” and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”  The program will blend narration and a slideshow with a performance of treasured masterpieces.

These four trailblazers forged new paths in classical music.  Hailed by some as geniuses and mocked by others as outrageous, each braved new territory with a distinctive voice.  Ludwig van Beethoven (born 250 years ago) infused classical music with a bold, dramatic character.  Franz Liszt paved the way for nationalism by writing works in a gypsy style from his native Hungary.  Claude Debussy grafted the art form of impressionism into classical music.  George Gershwin created a fresh American sound with an infusion of jazz, popular, and Broadway styles.  These four courageous trendsetters changed the course of classical music forever!
