May 2023 marked the 30th anniversary of Mieczysław Horszowski’s death. The legendary pianist was active in collaborating with his contemporary composers, and this program features two of the composers with whom he had personal contact: Enrique Granados and Camille Saint-Saëns.
In honor of Miecio’s legacy, Horszowski Trio pianist Rieko Aizawa brings her own period instrument, a clavichord, to Pickman Hall. She inherited the instrument from her teacher, Peter Serkin, who inherited that same clavichord from his and Rieko’s teacher, Mieczysław Horszowski. As clavichord was Bach’s favorite instrument, she will perform both a Bach piece and one of the newest compositions written for her most personal instrument.
