Jason Hardink continues his four-part exploration of the solo piano music of Franz Schubert and the Second Viennese School this coming Thursday. The free concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and takes place in Libby Gardner Concert Hall on the University of Utah campus.
On the program is Alban Berg’s only work for solo piano, the early pre-12-tone Sonata, op. 1. This will be paired with Arnold Schoenberg’s first 12-tone piece, the Suite, op. 25. Rounding out the recital are two works by Franz Schubert: the Six moments musicaux, op. 94, and the monumental Sonata in A major, D. 959.
The final concert, which is also free, takes place on May 19 at 7 p.m. in the Salt Lake City Library Auditorium. On the program are Schubert’s Drei Klavierstücke, D. 946, and the Sonata in B flat major, D. 960; Schoenberg’s Klavierstücke op. 33a and b; and Anton Webern’s Variations, op. 27.
