International award-winning pianist and composer Peter Arnstein gave an exciting concert preview last Friday for the residents of Christenson Village. He gathered a full house to enjoy an innovative piece which, as Arnstein said, “is a bit of Bach and a bit of me.”

The composer Chopin was said to make many changes to his work before it was published and Arnstein gave an example of how this creative process might have sounded until a prelude was born.

He also included three original pieces composed as if for a film noir, and he closed with a Chopin piece that showcased Arnstein’s power and talent.
