John Ford
Recital Gems

We all face the challenge of finding the perfect recital tunes for our students.  We spend countless hours scouring the musical universe for pieces at just the right level of difficulty, and that will spark the student’s interest.  We do want to please the audience as well, so it’s essential to find pieces that will add color and variety to a program.  (John) I can help.  From years of experience, (John) I will present pieces at various levels that will enliven your studio, and improve your recital repertoire.  Come and enjoy some treasures from past recitals that are sure to please one and all.

George Radosavljevic
Liszt and the other Arts

A sampling of piano masterworks created by Franz Liszt –  inspired by the work of other artists, poets, and musicians. Liszt was profoundly affected by the creations of his fellow artists, current and historic. His admiration and respect is evident in the care and imagination that he applied to the corresponding piano works.
