Elan Sicroff Plays Piano Music by Thomas de Hartmann

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

Other concerts in the Boston Metro area

Sunday March 14, 2010, 3 pm

Goodnow Library, Sudbury MA

Pianist Sicroff received his classical music training at the Julliard School, Oberlin Conservatory and the International Academy for Continuous Education in Sherborne, England. While teaching in England, Sicroff was introduced to Olga de Hartmann, widow of Ukranian composer Thomas de Hartmann (1885-1956). He studied with her from 1975-1979. Since then, Sicroff has given many recitals of de Hartmann’s music at concert halls and universities in the US, Canada, and Europe.

Most of this program will consist of de Hartmann’s piano music composed under the spiritual influence of Soviet mystic G. I. Gurjieff (1872?-1949).
