The concert will include a selection of masterpieces devoted to French piano music, with a special emphasis on Debussy in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the composer's death. The program will begin with a harpsichord "Suite in E minor" by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Then Debussy will be represented by his three-movement "Suite Pour le Piano."
The second half of the concert will feature works that focus on musical representations of the wind by Charles-Valentin Alkan, Olivier Messiaen and Debussy. The concluding three works by Debussy and Saint-Saens were inspired by their trips to Italy and Africa.
Glover will also share his knowledge of each composer's work and style, breaking down the components of the music for the audience.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 17, at First Presbyterian Church, 2020 Fifth St. in Livermore. Tickets are $25. Call 866-4003; email firstname.lastname@example.org; or go to www.valleyconcertchorale.org.
