When best-selling author Elizabeth Kostova (“The Historian,” “Swan Thieves” and “Shadow Lands”) heard Filip play the very same piece that is featured in her latest novel, she readily agreed to dine with him when he came to the Landrum area, and attend his performance on Sept. 9.

Fabio Parrini will accompany Filip on a 6-foot-4-inch Boston Concert Grand Piano.

The program will be 50 minutes, without intermission.
