The Rice Brothers
SUN OCT 9 | 2 PM
The Rice Brothers (piano and cello) Chopin’s Heart, Your Heart
Their signature “concert and conversation,” the Rice Brothers begin by sharing the deeply moving story of Chopin’s heart. Next, Johnny & Chris perform Chopin’s glorious music, carefully set into the historical context established by such sources as Chopin’s letters, Franz Liszt’s book The Life of Chopin, penned shortly after Chopin’s death, and the recollections of Chopin’s friends, colleagues and students. They also play the music of other composers whose works bear a strong relationship, including a historical relationship, to Chopin’s world. And finally, they address the universal implications of Chopin’s life and music, including for the lives of the folks in attendance! You’ll notice that the brothers exchange instruments during the concert!
