2017 The 20TH Alexander Paley Music Festival!

SATURDAY program | SUNDAY program

This year’s Festival will resound with two incredible Blüthner pianos, both in play at the Friday performance. On Saturday, two separate performances, afternoon and evening, will give scope to a historic performance of the complete Beethoven piano and violin sonatas. (Don’t worry, you’ll have time to grab a meal between concerts; the program will list several nearby restaurants.) Sunday’s concert offers a beautiful finishing flourish to our twentieth festival with wind, brass, and piano works.
