American pianist Peter Serkin kicks-off the spring season for The Sanctuary Series with a concert entitled “Channeling the Masters” on Sunday afternoon, March 17 in the Sanctuary of the South Salem Presbyterian Church at 4 PM. Featured will be later piano works by Mozart and Bach’s “Goldberg Variations.”
Praised by The New York Times as “one of the handful of pianists who not only possess a cerebral understanding of the music of our time but the ability to communicate it with feeling," Peter Serkin holds a singular place among today’s classical music artists, admired equally for his performance of established repertoire and as a consummate interpreter of contemporary music. He has performed with the world’s major symphony orchestras led by such eminent conductors as Seiji Ozawa, Daniel Barenboim, Simon Rattle, Herbert Blomstedt and Claudio Abbado and is equally accomplished as a chamber musician both in his collaborations and as a founding member of the TASHI Quartet.
Now in its sixth season, The Sanctuary Series remains committed to presenting “extraordinary keyboard recitals in the pastoral setting of northern Westchester’s historic South Salem Hamlet.” The spring will also feature the Sonicals Piano Duo featuring George Lopez and Joel A. Martin (April 7), and pianists Andrius Žlabys (April 28) and Ko-Eun Yi (May 12). All concerts are followed by a reception.
South Salem Presbyterian Church is at 111 Spring Street, South Salem, NY, just 4 miles West of the fountain in Ridgefield CT. Tickets begin at $25 ($15 students) for general admission in advance and can be purchased on the Series website www.thesanctuaryseries.org.
