CLASSICAL | Misuzu Tanaka 

Pianist Misuzu Tanaka performed at Rochester Institute of Technology last year with clarinetist Maksim Shtrykov; this weekend, Tanaka returns to RIT for a solo recital. The program is outstanding: Beethoven's Sonata No. 30 and "Rondo a capriccio" ("Rage Over a Lost Penny"); Rachmaninoff's "Variations on a Theme of Corelli"; Bach's "Italian Concerto"; and Leos Janácek's "1.X.1905" sonata. Beethoven and Rachmaninoff make a powerful pair; but Janácek and Bach together on the same program? These masters from 18th century Germany and early 20th century Czechoslovakia go together perfectly according to Tanaka, who responds to what she calls their "structural perfection and display of raw uninhibited emotions."

Misuzu Tanaka performs Friday, March 2, at RIT's Ingle Auditorium, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive. 8 p.m. $20 general; $15 for RIT faculty/staff/alumni; $5 students. 475-4121; rittickets.com.
