Carte Blanche Concert I

Gilbert Kalish

Though rightfully regarded as the father of the piano trio, string quartet, and symphony, Haydn remains underrecognized 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 2020 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 maturity.
