Francine Kay, visiting from Princeton University will play repertoire from her recent CD recording of piano music by celebrated Czech composers Dvorak and Suk, Debussy, renowned living Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, and the brilliant but tragically short-lived female composer Vítězslava Kaprálová.
