Wolfgang Roethig started playing piano at age 9 and organ at age 14. He participated regularly in recitals and concerts as a soloist and accompanist. He also played church organ regularly in his hometown near Heilbronn, Germany, for 10 years. When he moved to Paris, France for doctoral studies, he was twice finalist in the "Concours de Piano des Grandes Ecoles". Wolfgang now lives in San Jose, CA, and balances family life and work in the high tech industry with his passion for music. He is organist at Foothill Presbyterian Church, and he enjoys playing both classical music and jazz on the piano.
The concert will include Bach's Goldberg Variations, movements from Sonatas by Mozart and Beethoven in the form of variations, an Impromptu by Schubert, Brahms' variations on a theme originally composed by Handel, and Edvard Greg's Ballade. The idea is to show how composers from different centuries developed themes in their unique style while using a common form and in some cases even seemed to collaborate.
