This event is the culminating studio piano recital of each semester for the piano students and presents some of the high points of the piano repertory, including the sparkling Scarlatti sonatas, excerpts from Beethoven's piano sonatas, known as "the New Testament of the pianist," and the first of the epic Chopin Ballades.
