NY/NJ Chapter Presents Luiz DeMoura Castro in Recital

The American Liszt Society NY/NJ Chapter (its 24th season) and Yamaha Artist Services presented pianist Luiz de Moura Castro in a recital on Thursday, October 8, 2015, at the Yamaha Piano Salon in New York City.

The Program included:

Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847)
    Two Songs Without Words
    Rondo Capriccioso in E Major, Op. 14

Franz Liszt (1811 - 1886)
    Six Consolations, S. 172
    Sonetti di Petrarca, Nos. 47 123, S. 270
    Variations on the Theme, "Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen," S. 180

Alberto Ginastera (1916 - 1983)
    Rondo sobre Temas infantiles
    Suite de Danzas Criollas

Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887 - 1959)
    Three pieces from Children's Carnival
    Alma Brasileira
    Dance of the White Indian

In the words of Chapter President, Gila Goldstein, "Luiz dedicated the performance of the variations to the recent passing of Tom Mastroianni, Anne Koscielny and Aldo Ciccolini.

"Luiz is one of a kind. One learns from him about sound and unique, free interpretations. It was an illuminating and inspiring evening. We had a very good crowd, many admirers and former students came, and also our friends and fellow Lisztians Rena Mueller, David Cannata, David Witten and Justin Kolb attended."
