Jon Kimura Parker returns to Orcas Island for a Salon Concert on Sunday, March 12, at 3:30 pm, presented by Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. The audience will be treated to a diverse selection of engaging piano works by composers classical to contemporary.
Jon Kimura Parker will perform Beethoven’s beautifully complex Sonata in F minor Opus 57, familiarly known as the Appassionata. Also on the program are Ravel’s Jeux d’Eau (Fountains), Scenes from a Jade Terrace by Alexina Louie, and, back by popular demand, two fantasies by William Hirtz, one on movie themes scored by Bernard Herrmann for thriller and sci-fi classics North by Northwest, Mysterious Island, and Psycho, and an audience favorite, the Wizard of Oz Fantasy, originally scored as a duet for two pianists and reworked by the composer as a piano solo with Parker in mind. Mr. Parker remarked about the piece, “It’s one of the most difficult works I’ve played, period.”
The setting for this concert will be the intimate living room of a lovely island home. Enjoy the post-concert reception and join us for a glass of Thurston Wolfe wine and light appetizers provided by Bill Patterson of William Patterson Foods.
