Coast-to-Coast Recitals

In 2009 Janet presented 19 concerts in venues from coast to coast, performing a demanding program of sonatas by Irving Fine and Beethoven (op. 30, no. 2), and Schubert’s Fantasie.  It was challenging to travel extensively while also maintaining her teaching schedule and fulfilling administrative responsibilities, resulting in little sleep and late nights answering e-mails, but the musical and personal rewards were, as always, unforgettable.  Among the unexpected people who attended her concerts was Dr. Emily Fine, Irving Fine’s daughter.

The eminent Flemish pianist, Jozef De Beenhouwer, traveled from Antwerp to perform three memorable concerts with Janet, the seventh time that they have toured together in sixteen years.

The brilliant American pianist, Anthony Padilla, joined Janet for concerts in resonant Old First Church in San Francisco, in gothic-style Fulton Hall at the University of Chicago, and at Cal State-Sacramento, Lawrence University and Beloit College.

Pianist and scholar Raymond Erickson and Janet offered performances of stylistic vision at CUNY Graduate Center and Hunter College in New York, and at the Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College.  At Hunter, Janet captivated a chamber-music class of advanced students with a lecture, Q & A, and master class.

Janet also performed several recitals in New England with the accomplished young Japanese pianist, Mana Tokuno.
