Have you ever wondered what or who inspired the great composers to write their masterpieces? Please join acclaimed international pianist Robyn Carmichael in her presentation for a rare glimpse into the lives of four great masters of the keyboard: Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, and Mendelssohn. Discover new insights into the lives of these musical geniuses in a program combining music, poetry, images, and commentary. This program is free and open to the public with registration recommended at pequotibrary.org.
Carmichael's distinctive style has defined her concerts in the U.S. and Europe. Audiences and critics have praised Carmichael for her “extraordinary poetry” and “lush, thrilling and intensely personal” performances. Carmichael has appeared at the Aspen Music Festival, the Grand Concert Hall at City Halls (Glasgow, Scotland), Ostrogski Palace Concert Hall (Warsaw, Poland), CAMI Hall in New York City, Denver's Municipal Auditorium, San Francisco's Nourse Theater, the Salk Institute, the Idyllwild Summer Music Festival, and the Radziejowice Palace in Poland.
Her 2018 season features East and West Coast tours with an all-Russian program including the virtuosic Tchaikovsky/Pletnev Nutcracker Suite, educational concerts with commentary for libraries and grassroots organizations, and a unique Chopin project and a program honoring the 200th anniversary of choreographer Marius Petipa.
