You are invited to join Dr. Christina Long on a musical sojourn entitled
"Exotic Inspiration" featuring piano music of Schumann, Scarlatti, Mozart, Liszt, Mendelssohn, MacDowell, Debussy, Griffes and Sczymanowski.
Nowadays we hear news, see pictures, or take trips to explore the world. Composers use music to express their emotions and thoughts inspired by foreign lands and people. In this concert, you will hear how musicians kept their “musical blogs”. These could be memories from taking actual trips, just reading some literature, seeing a painting, or hearing unique sounds. The recital will provide opportunities for us to travel aurally to exotic lands. That is the power of art! It will take us to places that we have never been.
