Guest Artist Concert: Shai Wosner, piano

Guest Artist Concert: Shai Wosner, piano

Pianist Shai Wosner has attracted international recognition for his exceptional artistry, musical integrity and creative insight. His performances of a broad range of repertoire, from Beethoven and Mozart to Schoenberg and Ligeti, as well as music by his contemporaries, communicate his imaginative programming and intellectual curiosity. Wosner’s virtuosity and perceptiveness have made him a favorite among audiences and critics, who have called him a “highly intelligent player in his prime” (The Washington Post) with a “keen musical mind and deep musical soul” (NPR’s All Things Considered).

Wosner has been widely praised for his interpretations of Franz Schubert’s solo works, both in concert and on recording. His latest CD, released by Onyx in November 2014, features the Six Moments Musicaux, D. 780 and the Sonata in A Major, D. 959, paired with Brooklyn-based composer Missy Mazzoli’s Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos, a 2007 work written for piano and electronics as a meditation on the A-major sonata. Later this season, at the 92nd Street Y in New York, Wosner curates The Schubert Effect, in which he is joined by the Parker Quartet for a two-part recital series that juxtaposes solo and chamber works by Schubert with those by living composers, namely György Kurtág and Ms. Mazzoli.
