Piano concert set for May 11
Manabu Takasawa, praised for his "sensitive touch" by the Washington Post and his "beautiful sound" by Musica Nova magazine (Japan), will perform a varied program of piano classics at the final Jamestown Community Piano Association concert of the season on Sunday, May 11, at 4 p.m. at St. Matthew's Church.
Takasawa is associate professor of music at the University of Rhode Island and an internationally known pianist and music scholar. He has charmed Jamestown audiences at earlier recitals, most recently as the second pair of hands in the duet performance of Igor Stravinsky's Three Movements from Petrouchka at the Hiroshi Taguchi concert in March.
The Jamestown Community Piano, purchased by public subscription in November 2001, is a seven-foot Schimmel grand. The Jamestown Community Piano Association is an organization whose purpose is to maintain the piano for use by the community and to present concerts that feature the piano. The concerts are free. Donations for piano maintenance and performance support are appreciated.
