Renowned pianist David Holzman, a professor of piano at C.W.

The concert, which is sponsored by the C.W. Post Poetry Center, will include works by Elmar Landon, Chou Wen-Chung and Franz Liszt based on the poetry of Odysseus Elytis, Wang Wei and Petrarch, as well as Stefan Wolpe's “Two Songs Without Words."
