2011-2012 concert season about to open

Posted on July 9, 2011
Planning is the key to success in music, whether it's practicing for upcoming performances or preparing for concerts which seem way off in the future. Plan!

There's a series of performances coming up in April of 2012 I am looking forward to. The music is by Beethoven. First, January 22, I'm joined by baritone Kryztof Biernacki for a performance of "An die ferne Geliebte," then violinist Marguerite Richardson and cellist Shannon Lockwood and I perform the "Ghost" trio. Margerite and I will conclude our concert with the Violin Sonata in C minor.

Later, in April (on the 13th), I join the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra and conductor Michael Butterman for performances of the Third Piano Concerto.

A week later, April 20, I'll present a recital of four popular sonatas (can you guess which ones?) Pathetique, Tempest, Moonlight, Waldstein.

Finally, the whole project concludes with a release party in September of 2012 of my newest CD, a two-disc set of Beethoven sonatas (including those four popular ones mentioned above plus Opp. 101 and 109).

None of this can happen without planning.

Looking forward to seeing you at a concert soon!
