The Amherst College Department of Music presents “Album for Friends,” a piano performance thesis recital by Eugene Lee ’17 on Wednesday, Mar. 22, at 5 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. The concert is free and open to the public; seating is by general admission.

Eugene’s thesis, titled “Album for Friends” is a full solo piano recital featuring works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, and Ravel. Each work or collection of pieces by a specific composer explores the theme of companionship in its various aspects: greetings, farewells, love, and rejection. The performance of these works requires extensive pianistic familiarity as well as a maturity of musical understanding and emotion.

The entirety of the program seeks to demonstrate the universality of certain humanistic themes in music across centuries, as well as convey the power of the sincerity of music.
