"Said the Piano to the Harpsichord...": Randall Love, piano, and Elaine Funaro, harpsichord
Includes Poulenc's "Concerto Champetre" and contemporary works for harpsichord by winners of the Alienor International Harpsichord Composition Competition. Randall Love is a member of the Duke University music faculty where he teaches piano and fortepiano. He has been heard in this country as a soloist and chamber player in events ranging from performances on period instruments to contemporary concerts featuring North Carolina composers. He has performed at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, the Boston Early Music Festival, and the Schubert Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. Elaine Funaro is regarded as one of the leading performers of new music for the harpsichord, yet her repertoire spans the entire history of the instrument, from a recording of Baroque music on a Kirckman harpsichord made in 1758 to numerous premieres of late 20th century contemporary works. In addition to performing at the international Early Music Festivals in Amherst, Amsterdam, Berkeley, Boston, and Bloomington, she has been featured in solo recitals at the Smithsonian Institution and the Library of Congress. This concert is presented in association with Mallarmé Chamber Players' HIP Festival.
