Paley plans 'Winter Weekend'

Pianist Alexander Paley, whose Richmond festival of piano and chamber music presented its 18th season of concerts this fall, has added two concerts in late January at St. Luke Lutheran Church, 7757 Chippenham Parkway.

Paley will perform in a solo recital of Chopin’s 14 waltzes and the 24 préludes of Rachmaninoff at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 30.

He will be joined by pianist Daniel Stipe and narrator Pamela McClain in a family concert, “Beauties and Beasts,” at 3 p.m. Jan. 31. Their program includes Tchaikovsky’s “Children’s Album,” Ravel’s “Mother Goose” Suite and Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.”

A donation of $20 is suggested for each concert.
