J. Wynn Rousuck Western Maryland College in Westminster commences its Sundays of Note concert series at 2 p.m. today in Alumni Hall with a piano recital by David Buechner. Buechner, who was born and received his early training in Baltimore, is one of the best of this country's "thirtysomething" pianistic generation. He has won several important international prizes, but what is more important is that he has technique, passion and enough imagination to investigate areas of the repertory other pianists ignore.
His program today is evidence of the last of these traits. In addition to works of Bach, Chopin and Liszt, Buechner will perform the three "Mujeres Espanolas" of Joaquin Turina, one of the most important -- if underappreciated -- of 20th century keyboard composers, and three transcribed improvisations by the late, great jazz pianist Erroll Garner.
Information concerning tickets, priced at $5, subscriptions or directions may be obtained by calling the school at (301) 857-2265, or, from Baltimore, 876-2055, Ext. 265.
