Zachary Saffa's Studio Showcase returns for its second episode of the 2019-2020 season with a trio of spectacular piano compositions! Young virtuosos Joanna Z. and Grace L. will be performing Chopin's third etude, self-admittedly the most beautiful melody he ever composed, and Ravel's "Jeux D'eau," a cornerstone of late romantic music.
In addition, facilitator Zachary Saffa will perform, back by popular demand after last season's performance, the holiday piece "A Little Suite for Christmas" by American composer George Crumb. This playing will be accompanied by visuals of the Italian nativity frescoes on which the piece is based.
Are you a young performer interested in participating in the Studio Showcase Series? Contact Facilitator Zachary Saffa to get started.
