Four Hands, Two Keyboards… A Rich Combination of Sounds and Colors
Marc Peloquin and Roberto Hidalgo perform as the Split Second Piano Ensemble. The program, merging North American and Latin American influences, is thoroughly crowd-pleasing but never lightweight, and includes works by W.A. Mozart, Victor Babin, J.S. Bach, Gyorgy Kurtag, Aaron Copland, and Leonard Bernstein. Adult $25, Student $10.
