I aim to give concerts that are engaging and inclusive, and which present the best of the piano repertoire in illuminating combinations. I speak from the stage about my personal perspectives on music, including why I choose to play the music I do and why I feel certain pieces work well together on a program.
I am especially drawn to composers with unique musical personalities, individuals who developed a language apart from what others were doing. Schubert, a subtle expressive voice willing to lay bare his most intimate thoughts and feelings; Chopin, a self-made piano genius whose music feels as beautiful to play as it is to listen to; Rachmaninoff, one of history’s greatest pianists with a poetic soul equal to his virtuosity – these are a few of the composers at the centre or my repertoire, along with Bach, Scriabin, Ravel and Mozart.
Below are a few examples of recital programs:
