The Woodward Guest Artist Concert: Nicola Melville and Jill Dawe, pianists; Dave Hagedorn and Matt Barber, percussionists.

Faculty pianist Nicola Melville is joined by guests Jill Dawe, Dave Hagedorn, and Matt Barber for an extravagant evening of American and French music for piano and percussion. The Latin-American flair and pathos of William Bolcom’s “Recuerdos” for two pianos, the quirky “Gymnasium Marches” of Twin Cities composer/artist Steven Rydberg, and the fun and ironic edginess of Michael Daugherty’s “Lounge Lizards” for two pianos and percussion are intermingled with the evocative elegance of Debussy’s Petite Suite and Ravel’s “Alborada del gracioso” (arranged for two marimbas).
