We are excited to announce the COPI season for 2015-2016.
For the Steinway Piano Series, we have two wonderful soloists coming: Gilles Vonsattel and Vadym Kholodenko. Vonsattel started out in Political Science and Economics, but ended up in music winning the Naumberg International Piano Competition and an Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Kholodenko’s career has been steadily rising, but we really took notice when he swept the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, winning the Gold Medal, the award for Best Performance of Chamber Music, and the award for Best Performance of a New Work.
Joining Kholodenko and Vonsattel on the Steinway Piano Series is the exciting piano duo Anderson & Roe, returning to our stage by popular demand.
We also have two Special Events coming up. Noted fortepianist David Kim will be giving a lecture demonstration about the instrument favored by Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann. We will have the opportunity to hear music played on a fortepiano, which has a lighter touch and sound than the modern concert grand.
There will also be a lecture concert by Argentine pianist Alejandro Cremaschi on the infectious and exciting music of Spain and Latin American.
To learn more, we invite you to explore our website and, if you haven’t already done so, to sign up to receive our season brochure and our newsletters. It’s going to be a sensational season!
