Brandon Music steps into nature with pianist’s “Garden Tour”

Saturday, May 6, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Pianist Annemieke McLane will perform her new recital program “Garden Tour” at Brandon Music Saturday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. “Garden Tour” is an extension of her most recent album “Birds of Beethoven,” released last August. The pianist is touched by how composers, like painters, capture nature, and therefore has brought together a collection of works to tell stories of flowers, bugs, the moon, landscapes, and all that makes up nature. The program will include works such as Rachmaninoff’s “Daisies,”Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude,” the beloved “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Rimsky-Korsakov, Debussy’s “Nocturne,” and more.

“So, how do you decide what music you put together in a program?”, McLane’s 96-year old friend asked her once. Her response was “A flow, a good story. I like it when the pieces all link together; like the love for music does, and the love for creation—nature —in this case.”

McLane forms a duo with her husband accordionist Jeremiah McLane. They perform nationally and internationally. Concert tickets are $20. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon.
