FREE PIANO-DUO PERFORMANCE SET FOR SEPT. 7 AT MTSU
Guest Concert Features Daniel Paul Horn and Alex Djordjevic
(MURFREESBORO)—Guest pianists Daniel Paul Horn and Alex Djordjevic will perform as a piano duo in a program titled “Hallelujah /Amen” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 7 at a free and open concert in the T. Earl Hinton Music Hall of the Wright Music Building on the MTSU campus.
“Hallelujah/Amen” will include William Bolcom’s Through Eden’s Gates, John Adams’s Hallelujah Junction and Olivier Messiaen’s Visions de l’Amen, all of which are all 20th century music designed for two pianos.
“It is very exciting to be able to present such an imaginative and challenging program of infrequently heard piano duo repertoire performed by (Horn) with his duo partner, Alexander Djordjevic," said Lynn Rice-See, professor of piano at MTSU's McLean School of Music.
"Since our student days (together) at Juilliard and Peabody Conservatory, Daniel Horn has demonstrated a marked enthusiasm for music of the 20th century," she added.
Guest pianist Horn is a professor of piano at Wheaton College. He studied at the Peabody Conservatory and at Juilliard, where he earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree. An active performer, he gives recitals throughout North America and appears as soloist with Midwestern orchestras. He regularly collaborates as a chamber musician with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and has performed with the Ying String Quartet, as well as with violinist John Dalley.
Born in Chicago, pianist Djordjevic began his piano studies at age 3. He pursued graduate studies at the University of Illinois, where he received his master's degree and completed coursework for a Doctor of Music degree. Aside from performing concerts, Djordjevic is a highly regarded piano teacher and currently teaches at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Ill.
