October 25, 2006
On Friday, October 27 at 8 p.m. in Brunton Auditorium, Mount Allison’s department of music will present a recital by pianist and professor Edmund Dawe. The program will feature works by Scarlatti, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, and Debussy.
Praised for his technical command of the piano and artistic interpretations, Edmund Dawe has performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist in Canada, the United States, Great Britain, France, Hong Kong, and Korea. His recordings and performances are frequently heard in regional and national CBC broadcasts. His second solo CD release, Sonatas, was nominated for a 2004 East Coast Music Award (Best Classical), and has also been broadcast by the BBC in London. This past season, Edmund toured in Florida with the Atlantic Arts Trio, and performed on Chicago’s "Live from WFMT." Recently, his solo CDs were featured on David Dubal’s "Reflections from the Keyboard" on New York City's WQXR, North America’s most listened to classical radio station.
In November, Edmund will join Mount Allison colleague Wendy Nielsen for a collaborative song recital. In January and February, he will tour in the Maritimes and Ontario with mezzo soprano Marcia Swanston in a program of works by Dominick Argento.
The public is cordially invited to attend and tickets will be sold at the door. Beginning this season, the department of music is charging admission for some department-sponsored musical events. Funds raised will be used to support music department scholarships for entering students. Tickets for this concert are $10 for adults, $5 for students/seniors (60+), and $25 for families. Season subscriptions are also available for concert enthusiasts. For further information, please contact the department of music tel: 364-2374 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
