Join us on Tuesday, February 25 at 7:30pm, for Liszt, Love & Petrarch: The Pianist as Narrator with classical pianist, Paul Roberts. International pianist and long-time Portland favorite, Roberts is best known as leading exponent of French piano music. This lecture recital is an exploration of performance and communication at the keyboard. He will perform on a 7ft Fazioli grand piano provided by Portland Piano Company.
Portland Piano Company, located on 711 SW 14th Avenue, is the Northwest’s Premier Piano Store and Oregon’s only Fazioli representative. Not only were they one of the sponsors for The Historic Old Church’s fundraising gala last October, but they also donated a piano to be used in our “Little Ears” Concerts for Children on February 22 at the Gresham Library.
The Fazioli Company has produced grand and concert-grand pianos since 1981, when the company was founded by pianist and engineer Paolo Fazioli. Each instrument is individually handcrafted combining high quality materials with the finest workmanship and technology. Based in Sacile, Italy, this piano manufacturer has caused quite a stir. Read what the Oregonian’s David Stabler had to say about it. Featured in the article is The Historic Old Church board member, Susan DeWitt Smith.
