News NIGEL COXE PERFORMS AT MARLBORO COLLEGE, SEPTEMBER 20
MARLBORO, VT- (September 15, 2009) - The Music for Sunday Afternoon concert series at Marlboro College opens with a performance by pianist Nigel Coxe, September 20 at 3:00 pm in Ragle Hall.
The concert is free and open to the public. The program will consist of Hayden's Sonata in C, Schubert's 4 impromptus for piano, Bartok's improvisations and works by Liszt.
Nigel Coxe studied with Harold Craxton as a Fellow at the Royal Academy of Music in London and later became a professor there. The New York Times has written, "He goes to the heart of his music in modestly straightforward fashion, leading from expressive strength and shunning any sort of virtuoso exaggerations." He has recorded two CDs for the Titanic label, Music of Percy Grainger and Showstoppers, a disc featuring the music of Gershwin, Grainger and Eubie Blake.
The Marlboro College "Music for a Sunday Afternoon" series continues in October with cellist Paul Cohen on October 4 and the Orchid Ensemble on October 25.
