Boris Berezovsky, Tchaikovsky gold medal pianist, performs Nov. 3 in Memorial Chapel
Boris Berezovsky, the 1990 Tchaikovsky gold medal pianist, will perform a program of works by Scriabin and Rachmaninoff on Monday, November 3, at 8 p.m. in Union College's Memorial Chapel.
The concert is part of the Schenectady Museum-Union College Concert Series. Berezovsky is returning for his second performance in the Series after a sensational debut last year.
Born in 1969, Berezovsky began his studies at the Moscow Conservatory of Music and later studied privately with Alexander Satz. After winning the Tchaikovsky competition in 1990, he performed with other Tchaikovsky winners in a concert that was telecast worldwide. He regularly performs with major orchestras including The Philharmonia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Halle Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing solo, Berezovsky has also given joint performances with longtime friend and colleague, violinist Vadim Repin. He records exclusively with Teldec Classics, and has released six discs.
On the program are Alexander Scriabin's Six Preludes, Op. 13, and Twelve Etudes, Op. 8, as well as Rachmaninoff's Sonata No. 1 in D minor, Op. 28.
Memorial Chapel is located near the center of the Union campus. Parking is available on campus and on nearby sidestreets.
This performance is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency.
Tickets, at $20 ($8 for students), are available in advance at the Schenectady Museum (518)382-7890 and at the door at 7 p.m. For more information, call 372-3651.
