More About FSU Student Susan Zoller to Present Senior Piano Recital

Frostburg State University student Susan Zoller will present her senior piano recital on Sunday, April 1, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center. The recital is free and open to the public.

Zoller will perform “Nocturne, Op. 32, No. 2 in A-flat Major” by Frédéric Chopin, “Les cloches de Genève: Nocturne in B Major” from “Années de Pèlerinage, Première Année: Suisse” by Franz Liszt, “Sonata in A Minor, D. 784” by Franz Schubert, “Oiseaux Tristes” from “Miroirs” by Maurice Ravel, “Five Sketches in Sepia” by Ernest Bloch and “Danzas Argentinas, Op. 2” by Alberto Ginastera.

The “Nocturnes, Op. 32” is a suite of two nocturnes Chopin wrote and published in 1837 and dedicated to Madame Camile de Billing. The “Nocturne in A-flat Major” is among the works of Chopin orchestrated in the ballet “Les Sylphides,” a romantic reverie about mood and dance.

“Première Année: Suisse” is the first set in Liszt’s trilogy, “Années de Pèlerinage” (“Years of Pilgrimage”). Suisse is comprised of nine pieces, each inspired by scenes or moods associated with Liszt’s Swiss travels. “Les cloches de Genève” (“The Bells of Geneva”) contains one of Liszt’s more Romantic themes, suggesting joy and love.

“Sonata in A minor, D 784,” which Schubert composed in 1823, is one of his major works for the piano. It was not published until 1839, 11 years after his death, as Op. 143 and dedicated to Felix Mendelssohn. The sonata is considered a profound and sometimes almost obsessively tragic piece.

“Miroirs” (“Mirrors”) is a five-movement suite for solo piano Ravel wrote between 1904 and 1905. Each movement is dedicated to a fellow member of the French avant-garde artist group, Les Apaches.

Bloch composed “Five Sketches in Sepia” in 1923 and within it are five short character pieces. With strong links to French impressionism, Western musical traditions and Jewish music, this work is based around atmosphere, moods and subjects. All five sections are wonderfully haunting and each present a plethora of different, complex compositional techniques.

“Danzas Argentina” (“Argentine Dances”), Op. 2” is a set of three dances for solo piano written in 1937 by Ginastera, one of the leading Latin American composers of the 20th century.

Zoller studied under Jeannie Wood-Kobert and Betty Hadidian before coming to FSU. She now studies under Dr. Jay DeWire and plans to graduate in spring 2018 with her bachelor’s degree in music performance. From Cumberland, Zoller is a graduate of Allegany High School.
