Lazy Sunday with Haydn
Is it possible Haydn and Schumann composed sonatas and novelettes with laid-back Sunday afternoons in mind? That theory will be put to the test by Israeli-born pianist Yoni Levyatov, who will perform their music in Los Gatos this weekend, along with pieces by Manuel de Fella and Franz Liszt. Levyatov has performed at the Jerusalem Music Center, the United Nations in New York City and Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg, Russia.
