Music from France, Germany, and Russia. By popular demand, the
Anderson-Owen Duo returns to the Parish Center for the Arts to perform L’Apres midi d’un faun by Debussy (arranged by Ravel), Morceaux by Rachmaninoff, and dances by Mozart, Brahms, and a couple of surprise composers.

A pre-concert talk begins at 4 p.m.

The performance will begin on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3:15 p.m.

Bonnie Anderson — co-artistic director of the Piano Series and Westford Academy alumna — is known for her expressive interpretations of Chopin, Brahms and Ravel. Collaborating with artists from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and New York Philharmonic, she has performed in Alice Tully Hall, Jordan Hall,

Shalin Liu Performance Center, the Austrian Embassy, and numerous
universities around the country. She performed Hindemith’s Trio for
Piano, Saxophone and Viola with Branford Marsalis and Christ of Huebner at the Nantucket Musical Arts Society Concert Series. After performing chamber music by Brahms, The Grand Rapids Press wrote, “Anderson’s gifts point to the poetic…the Brahms Sonata swept the listener away in ecstasy.”

Anderson will be joined by Boston pianist Stella Owen, who has been
making music nearly all her life. She moved to Boston after receiving
her Master of Music in Piano Performance from Northwestern University.

Owen regularly gives solo recitals, some including work with other musicians. She has always loved four-hands playing, so playing with Bonnie Anderson is a real treat, she said.
