Brian Marks, assistant professor of piano at Baylor University, will present a faculty recital at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, in Roxy Grove Hall.
The program will open with a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue in D minor, BWV 903, a work written in Cöthen around 1720.
Marks will play a suite for piano by Russian composer Sergei Prokofieff, Visions fugitives, Op. 22.
The program will conclude with the last of Frédéric Chopin's three piano sonatas. The Sonata in B minor, Op. 58, was composed in 1844, and is among the most highly regarded piano works of the Romantic period.
Marks holds a bachelor of music degree from the University of Denver and master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. He also has studied musicology at the Ludwig Maximilians Universität in Munich, Germany.
