“In My Homeland”

My next piano concert is on Sunday, February 16th at 3:00 p.m.
Triune Masonic Temple – 1898 Iglehart Avenue, Saint Paul MN 55104

The theme for this concert is based on the title (“In My Homeland”) of one of the pieces I am playing by Grieg from his very Norwegian “Lyric Pieces”. Like food and dancing, music can capture the character of a country – a homeland – and evoke a feeling of longing and nostalgia and is a powerful association with our deepest feelings of connection.

My program presents memorable piano music by Grieg – including “Wedding Day at Troldhaugen” – Bartók’s striking “Romanian Dances”, and of course, music from my homeland, England! It is remarkable that this is the first time I am performing piano solos by English composers – Vaughan Williams, Holst and Grainger. Would you like to hear VW’s “Fantasia on Greensleeves” and “An English Country Garden” in a boisterous arrangement by Grainger?

I am very excited to be presenting this colorful, rhythmic and vibrant program and hope you can join me.

Please forward to this message if you think a friend would like to hear this live piano concert.

All best wishes,
Roderick

Tickets: $20 at the door – Cash, checks or Venmo
