National Philharmonic Presents
Brian Ganz, piano
Continuing his quest to perform all of Fryderyk Chopin's works over the next decade, pianist Brian Ganz will explore the theme of dances and fantasies in his second Chopin recital at the Music Center at Strathmore. Ganz, a prizewinner in the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium and the Marguerite Long–Jacques Thibaud (Paris) International Piano Competitions, has performed as a soloist with such orchestras as the National Philharmonic, St. Louis Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic and Paris's L Orchestre Lamoureux.
"One comes away from a recital by pianist Brian Ganz not only exhilarated by the power of the performance but also moved by his search for artistic truth." (The Washington Post)
