Piano Four-Hand Concert

The Hope College Artist Piano Series, in its second performance of the season, will bring Barbara and Gerhardt Suhrstedt to Dimnent Memorial Chapel on Friday, Oct. 27, at 8 p.m.

The evening will feature Schubert's "Variations on
an Original Theme, D.813," "First Mephisto Waltz" by Liszt
(arranged for piano duet by the Suhrstedts), and "La Valse:
Poeme Choreographique by Ravel (arranged for piano duet by
Lucien Garban).

One of America's few one-piano, four-hand touring
teams, the Suhrstedts met and married while completing
graduate study at Boston University's School for the Arts.
Their teachers have included Jack Radunsky, David Gibson,
Bela Boszormanyi-Nagy, Heinz Schroter, George Haddad,
Richard Cass and Theodore Lettvin. Since their 1982 New
York debut, they have performed in 40 states, Canada and
Russia.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College
Avenue at 12th Street. Tickets for the concert will be
available at the door, and will cost $5 for adults and $3
for students. Admission is free with a Hope student ID.
