Koret Recital Series, Peter Serkin, piano, Works by Wolpe, Takemitsu, Beethoven, and Wuorinen, May 8, 2012

Overview

Peter Serkin ranks among the most thoughtful and individualistic musicians performing today, something that should come as no surprise, given the extraordinary musical legacy from which he emerges. Serkin's rich musical heritage extends back several generations: his grandfather was violinist and composer Adolf Busch and his father the legendary pianist Rudolf Serkin. Over his long and distinguished career, Peter Serkin has a well-earned place alongside these artistic giants—small wonder that The New Yorker claimed, "no other pianist has matched his ability to make great music shiver with life."

Program: Oliver Knussen: Variations • Takemitsu: For Away • Beethoven: Diabelli Variations • Charles Wuorinen: Adagio (2011)
