Pianist Andrew Rangell will perform in concert 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 10 at Lafayette’s Williams Center for the Arts. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased by calling the box office at 610-330-5009.

Rangell’s program features exquisitely phrased and intelligent interpretations of inspired musical choices. For his return engagement to Lafayette, he will perform works by Haydn, Beethoven, Christian Wolff, and Leos Janacek. In a tribute to the 150th anniversary of Frederic Chopin’s death, Rangell will close the performance with four mazurkas by Chopin and the celebrated Ballade No.3 in A-flat major, Op.47, composed during Chopin’s Paris sojourn with the author George Sand.

Andrew Rangell is a graduate of the Juilliard School where he earned a doctoral degree in piano under Beveridge Webster. Born in Chicago and raised in Colorado, he has performed throughout the United States. New York appearances include recitals at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the 92nd Street Y, Columbia’s Miller Theater, and Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival. Rangell has been resident artist and principal piano instructor at Dartmouth College and is the recipient of an Avery Fischer Career Grant.

Rangell’s discography, on the Dorian label, includes Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Beethoven’s final five sonatas and a disc titled, A Recital of Intimate Works. A disc of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit awaits release.

The performance is made possible, in part, by grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
