Matthew and Vlada Return on Saturday

 Anyone who attended the two earlier Masterwork Conversations concerts here at the Library is looking forward to Saturday's performance "The Imagination of the Folk" at 2:00 pm.

Masterwork Conversations is the husband-wife team of Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneyva. Matthew and Vlada perform in an interactive story-telling recital format. You'll learn about the composers' lives, their inspirations, and what to listen for as the music is played by these accomplished pianists.

More exciting news for their fans in the Lehigh Valley: Matthew and Vlada are recording their debut album. Funded through a Kickstarter project, the CD will be titled "The Imagination of the Folk."

If you'd like to learn a little more about the CD and the music in Saturday's concert, take a look at this video.

The October 4 concert features two exciting collections of piano duets - Brahms' Hungarian Dances and Dvorak's Slavonic Dances - along with works by Stoyanov, Ligetti, and Szymanowski.

The free program will be held in the Catherine Drake Room which is handicapped accessible from Church Street. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library, the sponsors of the program.
