SPRING IS HERE and music’s in the air, part three


Art of the Piano is an intimate festival that brings together pianists from around the world to give a series of recitals and teach mater classes to a group of young artists.

An Enlight Prize of $3000.00, together with a recital on the 2018-2019 Salon 21 Series will go to one pianist chosen from among the young participants.

Lined up for recitals are pianists Alexander Korsantia, Boris Berman, Leon Fleisher, Jura Margulis, Maria Murawska, Vladimir Feltsman, and Christopher O’Riley.

This year’s Festival opens on May 25 with an interesting pairing of the young and fast-rising baritone Simon Barrad and Festival director Awadagin Pratt in a not to be missed performance of Franz Schubert’s Winterreise. As with all other performances in the Festival, this one will be given at CCM’s intimate Werner Recital Hall.
