Shulman to Play Schubert
The Salem Courthouse Community Center will once again offer a special musical event at 3 on Sunday, September 29. Daniel Shulman, widely recognized performer and educator, will appear in a solo piano recital to benefit the CCC.
Admission will be by donation, and the proceeds will support the chamber music concerts offered each spring.
Shulman is known as conductor of various ensembles across America, Asia and Europe, as well as for his skilled piano playing. He has received numerous prestigious grants and awards including the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard, the Leonard Bernstein Foundation and the Ditson Fund of Columbia University. For the past 4 years, he has organized the chamber music concert series offered at the CCC each spring, which has grown in popularity.
The program scheduled for September 29, is rare and distinguished, as it consists of the last three piano sonatas of Franz Schubert. Written a few months prior to his untimely death in 1828 at age 31, these formidable works are commonly regarded as the composer’s “last will and testament” in the field of piano composition. Each stands alone as a masterpiece, and together they offer a wealth of deeply expressed emotion.
The Courthouse Community Center is located at 58 East Broadway in Salem, N.Y., and is handicap accessible.
