Sara Davis Buechner to Perform on October 31

Presented by the Montclair State University John J. Cali School of Music as Part of Peak Performances @ Montclair

Guest Artist Sara Davis Buechner has been celebrated for her virtuosic mastery, artistic sensitivity and extraordinary versatility. With an active repertoire of nearly 100 piano concertos ranging from Bach to Wuorinen, she has appeared as soloist with America's most prominent orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Saint Louis and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras as well with noted international orchestras. Joseph Banno of the Washington Post writes, “Buechner’s performance has a beauty that might have taken even Mozart’s breath away.”

Ms. Buechner brings a unique program that features Francis Poulenc’s Three Novelettes, Histoires by Jacques Ibert and Yoshinao Nakada's Sonata for Piano. As a special Halloween twist, patrons are encouraged to come in costume and Ms. Buechner will choose a winner and award them with a special gift.

WNYC is a media sponsor for the 2007/2008 Season of Peak Performances @ Montclair. Peak Performances also acknowledges the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
