Classic Arts News   Misha and Cipa Dichter Return to NY's Museum of Jewish Heritage with Lesser-Known Works
 
Duo pianists Misha and Cipa Dichter return to the New York's Museum of Jewish Heritage on November 7 with a program including rarely performed works by Arensky, Busoni, Copland and Liszt.

Mr. Dichter, performing solo for the entire first half, will play Liszt's lesser-known Valse-Impromptu, S.213. The rest of his program features the first two ballades from Brahms's Op. 10, Schumann's Faschingsschwank aus Wien and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 15.

The husband-wife team will perform Copland's El Sal‹n Mexico in an seldom-heard arrangement by Leonard Bernstein, and Ferruccio Busoni's two-piano arrangement of Mozart's Fantasia for Musical Clockwork, K. 608, discovered by the Dichters and included on their recent recording of Mozart's complete piano works for four hands. They will conclude with Arensky's Suite No. 1, a work hardly ever played in its entirety.

The Dichters have been performing together since 1972, often playing neglected and infrequently heard works. They premiered at the Museum of Jewish Heritage last season Robert Starer's Concerto for Two Pianos.
