Mendelssohn AND a free piano? I’m there…

Featuring the music of Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Ludwig van Beethoven, Romantic Piano was full of passion, desire and love but Sawa described the combination of pieces as “goulash.”

 

Treutler’s work for the evening wasn’t finished as she joined the patrons in the theatre lobby as part of the promotion of the RSO’s Piano Lottery which featured a Yamaha Grand Piano as the grand prize. Treutler gave the piano a test drive during the intermission, much to the delight of the patrons.

Love and romance can be described in many different ways but when it came to the emotion in the Regina Symphony Orchestra’s Romantic Piano, Maestro Victor Sawa went with a down to earth depiction.

 

Schumann wrote the concerto for his wife Clara, who was a popular pianist herself. Treutler played the piece almost effortlessly with grace and flair. It was a simply masterful performance and at times you could see the music flowing through her.
