By Special to the Monitor

On Jan. 22, the Los Alamos Concert Association presents a performance by the renowned pianist Sergei Babayan. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. in Duane Smith Auditorium on the Los Alamos High School campus, and a reception will follow the concert.
The program will begin with the “Fantasia in C minor, Op. 21,” in memory of Maria Yudina, by Vladimir Ryabov, which Babayan played at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in December. The concert continues with a group of pieces by Alexander Scriabin, which includes “6 Preludes from Op. 11” and two “Etudes from Op. 8,” as well as an early Mazurka from “Opus 10” and a Mazurka from “Opus 25” written 10 years later showing his more mature style.
The group concludes with the philosophical and enormously difficult “Vers la flamme, Op. 72,” in which Scriabin depicts the world ending in a great conflagration. Following intermission, Babayan will perform a group of Waltzes from “Opus 17 and 34,” a Nocturne from “Opus 32,” and an Impromptu from “Op. 29” by Frederic Chopin.  The music of Sergei Rachmaninov brings the concert to a close with transcriptions from the song Melodia and the cello Sonata, and two Moments Musicaux.
