Six pianists met at Joan Rosenfield’s lovely home in College Park, MD, for the final Cadenza Recital of the season on May 5th.  

Though small in number, the performers played a great variety of music. The playing was on a very high level. Joan and Ben had invited a neighbor who came and added to the ambiance of the occasion.
