Mod­ern trans­po­si­tion: Pi­anist Juho Po­hjo­nen

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The mu­sic of the 17th- and 18th-cen­tury French clavecin­istes is de­tailed, sub­tle, and cus­tom-made for the harp­si­chord. Play­ing it on the mod­ern pi­ano re­quires a care­ful touch and a thought­ful sen­si­bil­ity. The Fin­nish pi­anist Juho Po­hjo­nen takes on the chal­lenge in his recital for Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val on Satur­day, July 29, at 5 p.m. He will per­form the 27th or­dre from François Couperin’s

Pièces de Clavecin (the con­clud­ing suite in the last vol­ume of his col­lec­tions so ti­tled, from 1730) and Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Nou­velles suites de pieces de clavecin (1728), a col­lec­tion of 15 mas­terly move­ments. The per­for­mance takes place in the St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.). Tick­ets ($10-$50) can be had through the fes­ti­val (www .santafecham­ber­mu­sic.com; 505-982-1890; 888-221-9836, ext. 102). — J.M.K.
