October 8, 2018
1998 Gilmore Artist Leif Ove Andsnes has a new recording—Chopin: Ballades & Nocturnes—released this September. His 2017 two-piano Stravinsky album with Marc-André Hamelin was named Recording of the Month by Gramophone magazine.
2002 Gilmore Young Artist Jonathan Biss was recently named co-artistic director joining Mitsuko Uchida at the Marlboro Music School and Festival. Biss said, “I think exploring the music with love and devotion, but maybe not awe, has to be the goal.”
2010 Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein has released a much-heralded new recording titled The Gershwin Moment: Rhapsody in Blue & Piano Concerto in F Major with conductor David Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
2012 Gilmore Young Artist George Li is the recipient of the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts. The prize recognizes outstanding artistic talent and achievement that honors the sum of a student’s artistic activities at Harvard. He was also chosen as one of NPR’s 2018 Slingshot Artists.
Congratulations to 2014 Gilmore Young Artist Andrew Hsu, who married violinist Rose Hsien in March.
2018 Gilmore Artist Igor Levit is releasing his highly anticipated new CD titled Life, featuring works by Bach, Busoni, Evans, Liszt, Schumann, and Rzewski. After performing here at the 2018 Festival, Levit went on to perform at Salzburg and Tanglewood.
2018 Gilmore Young Artist Wei Luo entered the recording studio in July. She was able to choose her Steinway in NYC at the factory and recorded works by Prokofiev and Shchedrin with Universal Music Group.
