Guest pianist performs Ives’ music

Guest pianist Richard Hihn will perform Charles Ives’ “Sonata No. 2” at Wake Forest University Jan. 24.

The free concert will begin at 8 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall.

The sonata, known also as the “Concord Sonata,” contains four movements titled, “Emerson,” “Hawthorne,” “The Alcotts,” and “Thoreau.”

Hihn has appeared nationally in numerous solo, chamber music and duo-piano concerts and as a concerto soloist. He often performs the music of 20th century composers, particularly George Crumb and Charles Ives.

For the past 18 years, Hihn has been artist-in-residence at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He received his musical training at the Eastman School of Music, the University of Michigan and the University of Colorado at Boulder.
