Nancy Garrett To Present Concert At Baylor

Sept. 19, 2002

by Richard Veit

Early-music specialist Nancy Garrett will present a guest recital at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, in Roxy Grove Hall. This recital is free and open to the public.

The recital will open with Muzio Clementi's Sonata in B-flat (Op. 24, No. 2) and then Franz Joseph Haydn's Sonata in E-flat (Hob. XVI:52).

Following intermission, Garrett will play Franz Schubert's alternately dramatic and lyrical Sonata in C minor (D. 958), written during a flash of inspiration in 1826, just two years before the composer's untimely death at the age of 31.

Garrett has performed throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Mexico and Taiwan. As a member of Duo Cristofori with fortepianist Penelope Crawford, Garrett has appeared in many major U.S. cities and festivals, including the Mozart Bicentennial at Lincoln Center, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute and the International Festival Institute at Round Top, Texas.

Garrett will present a demonstration of the remarkable mechanics behind early pianos at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, in Roxy Grove Hall.

Both events are free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
