"A NIGHT TO REMEMBER"
October 2, 2015
The DeSoto 4Seasons Concert Series, with co-sponsors: the DeSoto Arts Commission, the National Association of Composers U.S.A./Texas Chapter, and Steinway Hall Dallas, hosted a concert of classical music by Russian pianist Dmitri Ratser. Mr. Ratser is an internationally acclaimed Russian pianist and Steinway artist who has performed frequently in the United States since his American Debut in 1990. He performs frequently in his native Russia and has performed internationally in the United States, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Finland, amongst others. The venue for our Dmitri Ratser Concert wasThe Corner Theatre in DeSoto. After the concert, Mr. Ratser mingled with the concert-goers, answered questions, and signed his CDs (which sold-out) at a post-Concert reception. One of the pieces performed by Mr. Ratser was an original composition by our Artistic Director, Wieslaw Rentowski. It, and all the other pieces were enthusiastically applauded by an appreciative audience.
