Piano recital

Tonight we attended a piano recital in the new Lorton Performance Center at Tulsa University.  The facility open just last fall.  This was our first visit.  The concert tonight was free.  The pianist was Roger Price, who is on the faculty at TU.  The man played flawlessly by memory for the better part of two hours.  He played two Beethoven sonatas in the first part of the program.  After intermission, he played several pieces by Franz Liszt. 

I find it difficult to memorize just a single page of music.  Price played by memory for almost two hours.  The program climaxed with Franz Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2."  He wowed the audience.
