Schaghajegh Nosrati Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Monday November 13, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Schaghajegh Nosrati, Piano
Experience the Carnegie Hall debut of Schaghajegh Nosrati, a phenomenal pianist praised by Sir András Schiff for her “astonishing clarity, purity, and maturity.” J. S. Bach’s Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue makes for an exciting opening, as “Nosrati is a captivating Bachian; rhythmically infectious, supremely intelligent” (BBC Music Magazine). Beethoven’s beautiful “Pastoral” piano sonata, an uncommonly spacious work, follows. The concert’s second half begins with a spritely, fleet-fingered Haydn fantasia, while Alkan’s wonderfully varied (and woefully underperformed) piano symphony ends the performance in thrilling fashion.
