The Makings for a Great Movie

Our November 20 musicale featured two pianists, Sabine Walsh and Utako Tanigawa. Sabine played four pieces that she is preparing for her Royal Conservatory exam and they are progressing nicely. Utako played Chopin’s Nocturne Op. 27 No. 2. Great work by both players! The bulk of the hour featured a fascinating presentation by Tom Slavicek. It covered the life and music of his father, Bedrich Slavicek, born in Prague, who was an accomplished amateur composer and diplomat. He led a very interesting life, from conservatory training to helping obtain passports and visas for Jews during WWII to expat. His story would make a great movie!
