"Frederic Mompou's Piano Miniatures: Economical, Elegant and Intimate". Often unacknowledged as tantalizing impressionist literature, Mompou's compositional delicacy is presented by Janice Razaq, who is also a current East Central Division Director of MTNA. Janice Larson Razaq is Director of Keyboard Studies at William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. She received her Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Piano Performance from Texas Tech University, a Master of Music Degree from the University of Illinois, and a Bachelor of Music Degree with Distinction from the Eastman School of Music. A Fulbright Grant enabled her to study for three years at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Her London debut recital at Wigmore Hall received excellent reviews. Dr. Razaq has concertized extensively in the Midwest, including performances on the “Live from Landmark” series on Minnesota Public Radio, and on the Dame Myra Hess Concert Series from the Chicago Public Library, broadcast live on WFMT radio.
