TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

240px-HorowitzBainThe 9-foot concert grand Steinway piano that toured the world with legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz (shown at left) will arrive at The Music School of Delaware’s Wilmington Concert Hall this Sunday, October 12, at 4:30 pm for “From Russia With Love” – Experience the Horowitz Piano, a special Russian-themed concert and signature vodka tasting. Vladimir Horowitz was a Russian-born American classical pianist and composer whose technique and exciting performance style led him to be considered one of the greatest pianists of all time…and the Music School has his piano on stage!

Music School faculty members Dr. Holly Roadfeldt, Liliya Maslov and Dr. Oleg Maslov will perform Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and Prokofiev. Sponsored by Jacobs Music Company, hosts for the afternoon will be former board chair Robert Layton Reed and Dr. Holly Roadfeldt. Guests will enjoy a post-concert reception featuring Russian fare and signature vodka cocktails, poured by bartenders from Trolley Square’s Hummingbird to Mars and Hockessin’s House of William and Merry. Vodka was provided by United Distributors.

“Horowitz was often named as the ‘last romantic of the 20th century’ and I truly believe he was,” said Liliya Maslov. “I was lucky to attend his last Moscow concert — that was an absolutely amazing experience, an experience of a lifetime.”

“Just being in the presence of the Horowitz piano is an absolute adventure since it is a tangible connection with the most revered pianist from the 20th century,” said Dr. Roadfeldt, master faculty with distinction.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online or by calling (302) 762-1132. For more information about the Music School, call (302) 762-1132 or visit www.musicschoolofdelaware.org.
