Sally Pinkas – Musical Couples: The Schumanns and the Oliveiras
January 19th @ 6:30 PM at WCCMA at Union Church
Ranging from the quintessentially Romantic to the contemporary Brazilian, this program explores music created by couples sharing their personal and professional lives.
Following her London debut at Wigmore Hall, Israeli-born pianist Sally Pinkas has garnered universal praise as an eloquent and ardent performer. Among highlights are appearances with the Boston Pops, the Aspen Philharmonia and New York’s Jupiter Symphony, and at the festivals of Marlboro, Rockport (USA), Pontlevoy (France), Havana (Cuba) and HCMC Conservatory (Vietnam). A first-ever performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto in Bandung (Indonesia’s 2nd largest city), premieres of George Rochberg’s monumental Circles of Fire for two pianos in Russia, Israel and Nigeria, and a revival of rarely-heard 19th-century Filipino Salon Music in its birth city Manila, all exemplify Pinkas’ wide-ranging repertoire. Through her travel she shares it generously with enthusiastic audiences and young pianists.
