NewsCHAMBER PERFORMER DIANA FANNING HEADS TO MARLBORO FOR FREE CONCERT FEB. 29
MARLBORO, VT – Renowned pianist Diana Fanning will perform at Marlboro College in a free concert slated for Sunday, Feb. 29 at 3 p.m. in the Whittemore Theater.
The performance will include rarely-performed and delightful variations on “Une Fievre Brulante,” based on an aria from Gretry’s opera, “Richard the Lionhearted.” The program will also include the works of Brahms, Debussy and Schubert, and a sonata written for Fanning by composer Monica Houghton.
As a chamber musician, Diana Fanning has performed widely with cellist Dieuwke Davydov. The Davydov-Fanning Duo has undertaken concert tours of Europe, which included recordings for Radio Netherlands and has been presented in a Carnegie Recital Hall debut by the Concert Artists Guild International Competition.
After a solo recital in Munich, a critic wrote, "Diana
Fanning's virtuoso playing was rich in nuances...the effervescent
brilliance and passionate sweetness of her playing was acknowledged
by sustained applause."
Though a worldwide performer, she is known locally for her performances as a soloist with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and on Vermont Public Television.
Her principal teacher has been Ruth Geiger of New York City; she also studied with Marcelle Heuclin at the Conservatoire National de Paris. She currently teaches piano at Middlebury College.
This performance is free of charge and open to the public. The Whittemore Theater is located on the Marlboro College campus, on South Road in Marlboro. It is fully accessible.
