Event Price: 
Free

Presented by pianist Olivier Cavé and musicologist Elaine Sisman (Columbia University). Cavé will perform on DUMIC's 1805 Clementi piano and modern piano. The program includes Haydn: Partita in G major, Hob. XVI: 6; Sonata in D major, Hob. XVI: 24; Divertimento in C major, Hob. XVI: 10; Sonata in D major, Hob. XVI: 37. Also includes six piano sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti and "Cordoba" and "Castilla" by Isaac Albeniz. Olivier Cavé gave his first concert with the Camerata Lysy under the direction of Yehudi Menuhin in September of 1991 and has performed as a soloist in recitals and with orchestra throughout Europe. His career took a turn in 2008 upon the release of a first recording for Aeon, which features sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti. Dedicated to Muzio Clementi, Cavé's second recording is even more striking than his first. Released in 2010, the CD was given a 5 Diapason rating, 4 Stars from Classica and the highest award from the Japanese magazine Geijutsu Records. This success also led to invitations to perform at prestigious locations throughout the world, such as the Teatro Olimpico in Rome, the Tonhalle in Zurich, and the Phillips Collection in Washington. A leading Haydn scholar, Elaine Sisman is the Anne Parsons Bender Professor of Music at Columbia University, where she has taught since 1982. This concert/lecture is presented in association with DUMIC (Duke University Musical Instrument Collections)
