Wednesday Live Broadcast from the Cultural Center

Pianist Steven Vanhauwaert

Today’s Dame Myra Hess program features early works by Benjamin Britten. Britten himself was a formidable pianist; it’s only natural he should discover his voice as a composer, writing what fit beneath his fingers. His piano music is sassy and delightful, and woefully under-performed by pianists today.

Today’s recital features Steven Vanhauwaert, a player who pays due credence to the mainstays of the repertoire, there will be Brahms on today’s concert, but throws much of his energy into lesser-known works.

It is well worth a trip to the Cultural Center to contemplate the Tiffany Dome as live music washes over you; but if you can’t be there in person, tune into WFMT at 12:15.
