Enjoy the fascinating programming and gorgeous pianism of this charming young pianist from Georgia. In addition to Haydn and Brahms, you will hear a rarely heard work by Lili Boulanger, sister of the great French pedagogue, Nadia Boulanger, who was a major figure in twentieth century music. Both women studied with Faure before Lili’s early death in 1918. The Helps “Portrait” will be a touching reminder of Robert Helps’ own appearance in the Festival Piano Series in 1997. A significant American composer and extraordinary player, Helps died in 2001 and Robert Henry, a Helps enthusiast, will perform one of his most exciting works.
