Carte Blanche Concert I

Gilbert Kalish, piano

Though rightfully regarded as the father of the piano trio, string quartet, and symphony, Joseph Haydn remains under-recognized for his contribution to the solo keyboard literature. Yet Haydn also excelled in this arena, producing over four dozen sonatas among other solo keyboard works. The 2022 festival season’s Carte Blanche Concert series begins with a recital program by Music@Menlo luminary and longtime Haydn specialist Gilbert Kalish, who offers four of Haydn’s finest sonatas that span two decades of the composer’s life.
