Concert: Ann Schein, Piano
Wave Hill House
In a return engagement at Wave Hill, world-renowned pianist Ann Schein will perform Ravel’s Sonatine and Chopin’s Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35. Pianist and composer J. P. Redmond will perform his new work, Lachryma.
The Washington Post reveres Ann Schein as a pianist who “simply reaches right into the heart of whatever she is playing – and creates music so powerful you cannot tear yourself away." She is one of the greatest pianists of her generation. Over the course of her career, Schein has earned similar high praise in major American and European cities and in more than 50 countries around the world. Since her debut in Mexico City in 1957 when she performed both the Rachmaninoff 3rd Concerto and the Tchaikovsky B-flat Concerto, she has performed thousands of concerts on every continent.
J. P. Redmond was born in Newport Beach, California in 1999 and resides in Yonkers, New York. J.P. has been recognized with three ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Awards and in 2015 J.P. attended the Young Artist Summer Program for composition at the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied with David Ludwig, Shinuh Lee and Steven Mackey.
