From the September meeting announcement:
"Uncommon Encores of the Great Pianists" is a tantalizing, intriguing survey of infrequently-heard pieces that have served as encores for a variety of pianists from the "golden age" to the present. The selections draw upon the resources of the International Piano Archives at the University of Maryland (IPAM) and include unpublished live performances of actual encores played by such notables as Vladimir Horowitz, Wilhelm Backhaus, Sviatoslav Richter, Shura Cherkassky, Arthur Loesser, Van Cliburn, and others. In addition, IPAM Curator Donald Manildi plays several encore pieces selected from his private score collection of obscure gems from an earlier era. He also provides fascinating anecdotal commentary on the encore practices of many eminent virtuosos.
