Building upon the success of last year’s sold out Valentine’s Day party, Clayton Piano Festival will present another one-stop romantic outing to Feb. 14. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the night will begin with a dinner buffet followed by an intimate concert with virtuoso pianists Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva, and ending with a dessert reception with the artists, all in the elegant and intimate setting of the Historic Wagner House in downtown Clayton, 121 E. Main St.
Back by popular demand, the husband and wife team will present their latest show entitled “Paris,” which includes music composed in and inspired by the city. “Is there any city with more charm than the beguiling city of Paris?” Matthew asks, speaking about the new program. “If you think ‘no’, you will find yourself in agreement with the likes of Debussy, Liszt, and us too! Painters, poets and cultural prophets have always come together in this fabled city, and the rest of the world has followed suit. We’ll be your personal tour guide through this musical feast!”
Vlada and Matthew have been bringing their special programs, which they title “Masterwork Conversations,” to audiences since their inaugural tour in 2010. Their performances have taken them from stages in Europe to Carnegie Hall to the airwaves of WQXR New York.
