On Sunday, October 20th at 3PM, Friends of Music of Stamford NY, Inc. presents a recital by celebrated violinist Rachel Lee Priday, accompanied by pianist Marija Stroke. Priday’s wide-ranging repertoire and eclectic programming reflect a deep fascination with literary and cultural narratives. For this program, she will play Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sonata in E Minor, K. 304; Finnish composer Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Lachen Verlernt; Canon for Aaron, composed by Leonard Bernstein for his mentor, Aaron Copland; Béla Bartók’s Six Romanian Folk Dances; and César Franck’s Sonata in A Major. Priday began her violin studies at the age of four in Chicago. Shortly thereafter, she moved to New York to study with Dorothy DeLay and continued her studies at the Juilliard School Pre-College Division with Itzhak Perlman.
