Program Notes

In 2004 the Twin Cities lost one of its beloved musical citizens, Elinor Watson Bell. Mrs. Bell was one of our principal arts patrons, a fine pianist herself and a true music lover. In 1996 the American Composers Forum commissioned The Belford Waltz as a one-page piano solo. Elinor liked it so well that she hung it on the wall in her home, which was named Belford. She also asked for a duet version to play with her son, Dr. Ford Bell, and even had place-mats made with the score on them (so I was told)!
