Pianist Susan Merdinger performs Chai Variations on Eliahu HaNavi
March 27 @ 3:00 pm$25
Pianist Susan Merdinger performs Chai Variations on Eliahu HaNavi as part of her program Four Centuries: Variations. In addition to the Chai Variations, she will perform Beethoven’s Sonata No. 30, Op. 109. Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes and Barilari’s Saxon Variations.
Shatin’s variations have been recorded by pianists Mary Kathleen Ersnt and Nathan Carterette, the former on her Keeping Time album and the latter on his Poets of the Piano/Acts of Faith album. One of the unusual features of Shatin’s piece is that the performer chooses the variation order, with 18(!) options.
