The 20th Alexander Paley Music Festival takes place at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church this weekend! To kick off the performances, pianist Alexander Paley is joined by his wife, pianist Pei-Wen Chen, in a concert featuring works for piano four hands. Saturday will be a full day of Beethoven with two concerts, one at 3:00 p.m. and the other at 7:00 p.m. Paley will be joined by violinist Daisuke Yamamoto, concertmaster of the Richmond Symphony, as they present the entire set of sonatas for violin and piano. On Sunday, you can hear two wonderful works for piano and winds by Mozart and Beethoven, as well as Beethoven's Horn Sonata, Op. 17. Joining Mr. Paley onstage will be oboist Alexandra von der Embse, clarinetist Charles West, bassoonist Thomas Schneider and hornist James Ferree.

Yours in good music,
