Pianist Louis Goldstein to perform at WFU

Louis Goldstein will give a piano recital on Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. at Wake Forest University’s Brendle Recital Hall in the Scales Fine Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Goldstein has been teaching at Wake Forest since 1979, where he is a professor of music.

He is listed in “Who’s Who in American Music,” and has studied piano with Joseph Hungate, Rudolf Ganz, Leonid Hambro and David Burge.

The performance will include the works of Franz Josef Haydn, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Ludwig von Beethoven, Linda Catlin Smith and Claude Debussy.

Goldstein will perform Haydn’s “Sonata in F, VU 38” and Beethoven’s “Sonata in E, Op. 90.” As a counterpoint to these traditional selections, he will also perform more contemporary music.

The German composer Stockhausen is a pioneer in the field of electronic music and Smith is a member of the unusual performance collective, URGE.
