If you're like me, hearing Beethoven's Sonata Op. 10 No. 2 always makes me want to discuss spin density waves and quantum dots.
Fortunately, when pianist Sarah Masterson performs Sunday in New London's All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation, such things will not be a problem. In addition to having won the Evansville Philharmonic's 2001 Young Artist Competition and the 2009 University of Connecticut's graduate division concerto competition - Masterson co-majored in physics as an undergrad.
Masterson's recital benefits the New London Homeless Hospitality Center, and the program also includes works by Elie Siegmeister, Olivier Messiaen, and Liszt.
