Gabriel Bita to perform piano recital at TWU


DENTON — A historical variety of European music, from the early 19th to the middle of the 20th century, will be featured in a solo piano recital by Texas Woman’s University accompanist Gabriel Bita. The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland Street and Pioneer Circle on TWU’s Denton campus. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

The recital will open with Franz Schubert’s “Impromptu in A-flat major, op. 90, no. 4,” which was among the composer’s last works. Mr. Bita also will perform Robert Schumann’s “Kreisleriana, op. 16,” which the composer dedicated to Frederic Chopin. “Each movement shows a two-sided dramatic inner conflict, which represented Schumann’s soul throughout his life,” Mr. Bita said.

Mr. Bita will close the recital with Sergei Prokofiev’s “Piano Sonata no. 7 in B-flat major, op. 83,” written in 1942. “The sonata is widely acclaimed to be one of Prokofiev’s greatest works ever written; not just for its great timing and form, but its depth and imagery of the struggle, savagery and machine-like aspects of World War II,” Mr. Bita said.
