St. Paul, Minn. — Who knew that Haydn could be so hot? The Frederic Chopin Society presented pianist Imogen Cooper earlier this month in a recital that began with Haydn. His Sonata in Eb is typical of his music with plenty of playfulness and wit and wide-eyed humor. Cooper's proud performance from Sundin Music Hall in St Paul was all about the joy of music making. Her March 4th (2012) performance is in this week's Regional Spotlight.
