Maurizio Pollini, piano Presented by Strathmore Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 4:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
A lion of the keyboard, Maurizio Pollini stands tall among the legendary pianists: "his playing is powerful and precise, driven by a probing intellect and executed with steely, virtually infallible fingers" (The New York Times). Acknowledged as one of the great performers of Chopin, he is considered “one of the master’s most authoritative interpreters...every note sparked with gleaming transparency...his velvety legato touch unerringly found each work’s lyrical core” (Chicago Tribune). Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the world’s great artists in the acoustically ideal setting of Strathmore’s Music Center Concert Hall.
This concert will run approximately 100 minutes with intermission.
