STARK Lucien P. There will be a memorial service this Saturday, January 19, 10am, at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church to celebrate the life of Lucien Stark, pianist and Professor Emeritus of Music at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Stark chaired UK's keyboard division (1976-1995), after serving as chair of piano at George Peabody College (now Vanderbilt University). An accomplished private teacher, Dr. Stark founded and ran the renowned Seminar in Piano Teaching (1969-1977). He performed extensively as an accompanist, as a chamber musician (most notably with Concord Trio in Lexington), and as a soloist in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe. After retiring from active teaching, Dr. Stark published two definitive books on the songs of Johannes Brahms, and more recently created an extensive compendium of orchestral transcriptions for two pianos, eight hands. Dr. Stark is survived by a son, grandson, granddaughter, brother, and four nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the University of Kentucky School of Music.
