Pianist renowned for Spanish music at Keller Hall Feb. 2

RivaThe Friends of Music will present American pianist Douglas Riva, world renowned for his knowledge of Spanish music, in a solo performance at Keller Hall on Sunday, Feb. 2, at 3 p.m.

An Albuquerque native, Riva recently returned to live part-time in his home state. Considered one of the world's best exponents of the music of Spaniard Enrique Granados, along with pianist Alicia de Larrocha, Riva compiled and recorded an 18 volume critical edition of the Complete Works for Piano of Enrique Granados.

Riva agreed to perform this benefit concert for the Friends of Music, in part, because of his own commitment to music education.

Friends of Music, Inc. was founded 35 years ago to support music scholarships at UNM. It is a volunteer, non-profit organization that raises funds through donations and benefit concerts.

Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 students, and are available at the UNM Bookstore box office, tickets.com (851-5050 or 1-800-905-3315) or at the door.
