Accomplished musicians to perform ‘From Paris to You’ concert at Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club April 28
FanFaire Foundation presents “From Paris to You” with pianist Zachary Deak and violist Virginie d’Avezac de Castera, in partnership with the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, on April 28 at 2 p.m. at the RSF Garden Club.
Other performances in this Free Family Concerts Series take place on April 24 at Carlsbad City Library’s Schulman Auditorium (6:30 p.m.) and April 29 at La Jolla/Riford Branch Library (2 p.m.).
Frequent artistic collaborators, San Diego-born pianist Zachary Deak and Bordeaux-born violist de Castera have thoughtfully put together a diverse program of Baroque through 20th century music. The duo will perform Sergei Prokofiev’s Suite from Romeo and Juliet for Viola and Piano aptly described as an “opera without words” and Henri Vieuxtemps’ poignant Elegie op.30 for Viola and Piano. Zachary Deak opens the program with a solo performance of Domenico Scarlatti’s virtuosic piano Sonatas K. 450 G minor and K. 517 D minor and Franz Liszt’s sublime La Vallée d’Obermann, and ends it with Robert Schumann’s Piano Sonata No. 1 in F sharp minor, the composer’s “unique cry of passion” for his beloved Clara to whom he dedicated the work.
