A single piano and six hands in Surrey

Bergmann piano duo joins Sarah Hagen in concert Feb. 26

This Thursday at the Surrey Arts Centre, music lovers will marvel as pianist Sarah Hagen and the Bergmann Piano Duo (Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann) perform pieces that grow from one to six hands at one piano.

Be among the first to hear a new composition by Marcel Bergmann, plus works by Mozart, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and others.

Audience members can enjoy coffee and pastries in the lobby, starting at 9:30 a.m. and the 75-minute concert begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Studio Theatre.

The musicians are usually available for a chat after the performance.

The Bergmann Piano Duo has been described as artists who present “razzle-dazzle” and “electrifyingly rendered” recitals. They are directors at the Langley Community Music School, and were recently named Associate Artistic Directors of White Rock Concerts. Awards include first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta, Italy and at The 4th Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition. www.bergmannduo.com

Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves throughout North America and Europe. She has performed twice at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, first with Polish flutist Krzysztof Kaczka, and later as a First Prize Winner in the 2013 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition. Hagen, who enjoys a busy concert schedule as both a soloist and collaborator, recently released her second album Devoted: Music of Robert & Clara Schumann.

Hagen hosts and performs in Surrey Arts Centre’s Classical Coffee Concerts series. Her appearance with the Bergmann Piano Duo takes place Feb. 26. Tickets are $27.50, available by calling 604-501-5566 or online at https://tickets.surrey.ca.

The series continues April 2 with Nicholas Wright playing violin.
