International pianist Murray McLachlan premières the Compass Center Steinway
April 15, 7:30pm

Acclaimed and celebrated Scottish concert pianist Murray McLachlan will perform here at the Compass Center, the first recital to be given on a classic 1915 Steinway piano recently donated to the Compass Music and Arts Foundation by the estate of late New York jazz musician John Fischer. This will be a very special occasion as artists of the caliber of McLachlan are in great demand. McLachlan's program for the evening will include Chopin's 24 Preludes, Op. 28, Ronald Stevenson's Pensees sur les Preludes de Chopin, Finzi-McLachlan's 2016 transcription of Three Bagatelles for Clarinet and Piano, and Nikolai Myaskovsky's Sonata No. 1 in D minor.
