This program is a treat for piano lovers. With music from Schubert’s melodies to Rachmaninov’s expressive preludes, Russian-born German pianist Lilya Zilberstein will demonstrate her absolute mastery of the piano.
Rising to prominence after winning the Busoni Competition in Italy in 1987, Zilberstein is a sought-after performer at major concert halls and festivals around the world. Born and educated in Russia, her style captures the essence of the robust Russian tradition.
Her heritage informs this special performance of Rachmaninov’s Thirteen Preludes, inspiring the spirit and virtuosity to truly inhabit these pieces of wildly varying ideas. Schubert’s Lieder challenge the performer to make the piano sing, with all the nuance and emotion of the human voice. This display of the grand recital tradition is a one-night wonder, not to be missed.
