Jan. 26, 2001

Acclaimed pianist Jennifer Hayghe, the last student of the late Adele Marcus, will present a recital at Baylor University at 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29, in Roxy Grove Hall. The program will include music by Robert Schumann, Ludwig van Beethoven, Alexander Scriabin, Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt.

The recital will open with two major works that are staples of the keyboard repertoire--Schumann's Kinderscenen (which includes the beloved "Träumerei") and Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 28 in A major, Op. 101.

Following intermission, Hayghe will turn to several shorter compositions from eastern Europe. She will play three etudes by Scriabin, a nocturne by Chopin, one of the three Petrarch Sonnets (No. 104) of Liszt and then Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6.

Among Hayghe's notable performances as a solo recitalist are those with the Mostly Mozart Festival in both New York's Avery Fisher Hall and the Tokyo Bunkamura. She also was recently a soloist at Carnegie Hall at the Adele Marcus Foundation Inaugural Concert, featuring performances by other former students of Marcus, including Agustín Anievas, Jon Kimura Parker and Byron Janis.

This recital is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
