May 23--This week's TGIF concert at First Presbyterian Church (208 Grant Ave.) features a pleasing program of works for piano four-hands. Two of the hands will be supplied by Linda Mack, a former music director of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale who is now artistic director and conductor of the Durango Choral Society. The other two are attached to C. Scott Hagler, who is the Durango Choral Society's associate conductor as well as director of the Durango Bach Festival and Durango Chamber Music Festival. On the docket are two of DvorÁk's Slavonic Dances (op. 46), Mozart's G-Minor Fugue (K.401/375e, an unfinished work completed by Mozart's friend Maximilian Stadler), Poulenc's Sonata for Piano Four-Hands (a brief and snappy work from 1918, when he was sowing his wildest oats), Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 1, and some Gershwin selections. This half-hour recital begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 23. Entry is free, although discretionary offerings are appreciated. For information, call 505-982-8544, Ext. 16.
