Concert Series features Daniel Adam Maltz with early-1800s replica piano

PLAINVIEW – Wayland Baptist University’s School of Creative Arts hosts Daniel Adam Maltz at 7 p.m., Monday, April 3, in Miller Recital Hall as part of the Department of Music’s Excelsior! Concert Series.

A specialist in early pianos, Maltz is touring with his own replica of an early-1800s piano that is like the piano Mozart and Beethoven would have played, according to Dr. Richard Fountain, Associate Dean of the School of Creative Arts and Professor of Piano.

“His program will feature pieces by Haydn and Mozart,” Fountain said. “Mr. Maltz will also be presenting a workshop at 11 a.m. and a masterclass on 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 at which attendees will be able to experience this wonderful instrument up close.”

Admission to the concert Monday night is open with a suggested donation of $25 for adults and $10 for students.

 “We are especially grateful for the generous support of the Plainview Cultural Arts Council, as well as several local supporters who continue to make this series possible,” Fountain said.
