Michael Cannon, co-founder of the Honest Brook Music Festival in Delhi, NY, performs on piano.

Cannon’s piano performing career has taken him all over the world. He has performed in such major European capitals as London, Amsterdam, The Hague, Berlin and Frankfurt as well as Shanghai and Tokyo in the Far East. The London Daily Telegraph called him “A distinguished artist, having not only a fine technique, but also ripe experience and deep familiarity with the music – a wide variety of tone, warmth and flexibility.”

For the second performance of the program, Cannon put together a tribute to three composers – Mendelsshon, Chopin and Liszt – born within three years of one another, but who have greatly varied styles. He begins with Mendelsshon’s slow, somber, legato Prelude and Fugue (inspired by Bach) that flips into a staccato piece, only to turn back to the quiet beginning (now in a major) in the end. Next, Cannon performs “Three Etudes” by Chopin. He rounds out the trio with “Venezia e Napoli” by Liszt.

SETLIST:
Sonata in A minor, D. 784 by Schubert
Prelude and Fugue in E minor, Op. 35, No. 1 by Mendelsshon
Three Etudes by Chopin
“Venezia e Napoli” by Liszt
