Oregon Coast Chamber Music Society Presents….
OCCMS will present “An Afternoon of Colorful and Exciting Piano Duets” presented by piano duo Jay and Sandy Mauchley on Saturday, May 2 at 4 pm in the Depoe Bay home of Dick and Laurel Young.
Renowned as a brilliant duo-piano team, the Mauchley Duo has dazzled audiences of all ages in numerous recitals and concerto appearances throughout the United States. They enchant music lovers with their musical interpretations of repertoire that spans three centuries. Listeners find their programs electrifying, enthralling and passionate as the Mauchleys display facile technique, stylistic interpretations, and outstanding virtuosity. Critics have noted their playing as …”piano at its best. The skill with which they performed was as exciting to see as it was to hear…It seemed as if it were indeed one musician with four hands.”
The delightfully varied program will include Sonata in F Major, K. 497 by W. A. Mozart; Slavonic Dance in E Minor, Op. 72, No. 2 and The Bohemian Forest, Op. 68 by Antonin Dvorak; Souvenirs, Op. 28 by Samuel Barber; Hungarian Dances by Johannes Brahms; Pastorale in F Major, BWV 590 by J.S. Bach; “Mozart Goes to Town” by Clifford Benson; and Overture from William Tell by Gioachino Rossini. The duo will choreograph these works to stay out of each other’s way as they play together on one concert level baby grand piano.
Jay and Sandy Mauchley, professors emeriti at the University of Idaho, have collaborated together as a duo-piano team for 30+ years in both the United States and abroad. As collaborative artists, they have performed in Canada and Europe, and each summer they perform and coach at the Red Lodge Music Festival and the Interlochen Center for the Arts. In April of 2013, the duo performed at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
Popular clinicians, adjudicators and master teachers, the Mauchleys have both been awarded “Master Teacher” certificates by Music Teachers National Association as well as “Alumni Awards for Faculty Excellence” from the University of Idaho. Both pianists are also on the International roster of Steinway Artists.
