Boyes to Present Musical Portrait of the Year

Pianist Katherine Boyes will present a “Portrait of the Twelve Months of the Year” during a concert at 8 p.m. Friday, April 3, at Wake Forest University’s Brendle Recital Hall.

The musical journey through the months is compiled from the piano cycles “Das Jahr” composed by 19th century composer Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel and “A Calendar Set” by 20th century composer Judith Lang Zaimont.

Boyes will also perform a Johannes Brahms composition and transcriptions by Franz Liszt of a song by Robert Schumann and choral works by Allegri and Mozart.

Boyes is a visiting instructor of music at Wake Forest. A native of England, she has given solo and chamber music performances throughout Great Britain and the United States and has recorded for BBC Radio and American Public Radio. Boyes is a member of the chamber music group Emrys Ensemble and co-directs the Cincinnati Contemporary Music Ensemble Festival.
