The piano to be played at this concert will be the Erard "Extra-grand modèle de concert" piano, made in  Paris, 1877-’78.

 
We are fortunate that Mr. Shteinberg was able to fill in, on very short notice, this date originally scheduled for a concert with pianist Elaine Greenfield, who is temporarily disabled with a broken shoulder, and flutist, Karen Kevra. We look forward to being able to include that program as part of our Fall 2005 series.
