Weston Public Library will hold a piano duet by Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 5, in the library's Community Room, 56 Norfield Road.

Harrison and Yaneva will present an interactive program focusing on the music of Paris, during which they will explain the history of the pieces and answer questions on them, according to a news release. Works to be performed include Debussy's "Petite Suite," Mozart's "Piano Sonata in A Minor, Second Movement," Chopin's "Nocturne in E Flat Major" and Liszt's "Transcendental Etude No. 10."

Harrison holds master of music and bachelor of music degrees from Manhattan School of Music, where he is a teaching assistant. He has created a series of interactive performances for "Masterwork Conversations" that he has brought to libraries throughout the East Coast.

Yaneva, who has played the piano since the age of six, completed her studies at the Manhattan School of Music in 2006. She has traveled throughout Europe and the United States giving concerts and lectures, the release states. She is a piano teacher and a team leader of the first Children's Music Social Project at the New York Cares organization working with children in transitional shelters.

The event is free.
