Lunchtime Concert: Pianist Aaron Epstein

  • This event has passed.
Aaron Web Banner Lunchtime 2020

American pianist Aaron Epstein has given concerts throughout the world, including in Germany, France, the US, and Russia. He studied piano and musicology at Yale University and the Yale School of Music, and obtained a piano degree from the prestigious Franz Liszt School of Music in Weimar, Germany. He is very much looking forward to performing for the first time in this beautiful town of Nelson.

Aarons programme will be selected from works by Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Schumann and Bach.

 

“I have heard Aaron Epstein perform three times. Persistently, three words came to me:
“Inwardness” in his approach to the pieces and the instrument.
“Natural” in his choice of tempos and phrasing.
“Spirituality” in the content of his interpretations.
In Beethoven’s 30th Sonata, op. 109, two names came to my mind as I was listening: Serkin and Gilels. Aaron Epstein, more than a pianist, an artist to watch.”
– Gérard Déserbais, founder and director of record distribution company CED (Compagnie Européenne du Disque), former employee, Philips Records
