And now, a program sporting a pleasant symmetry. It begins and ends with two piano-duet works of irresistible gaiety— Rossini’s famous Barber of Seville overture and Milhaud’s suite, Scaramouche, winking at Brazil and drawing from its swaying rhythms. In the middle, the more extensive, severe, thoughtful solo-piano compositions by Liszt and Rachmaninov can be heard.
