KASMAN

Two-piano recital

                               

friday »february 7 » 8pm

The ASC proudly presents this exciting “four hands” evening featuring an all-Rachmaninoff program of music. » Experiencing a two-piano performance with Yakov and Aleksandra Kasman is the perfect way to appreciate the texture and grace of the Russian composer’s sound. » Well known to ASC audiences, Professor of Piano and Artist-in-Residence at UAB, Yakov Kasman made his debut in America in 1997 as Silver Medalist in the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. It was the culmination of several competition triumphs, including prizes at the 1991 Valentino Bucchi Competition in Rome, the 1991 London World Piano Competition, the 1992 Artur Rubinstein International Competition in Tel Aviv, and the 1995 International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg. Since his American debut, Kasman has appeared as soloist with more than 60 orchestras around the world, and produced 15 recordings on the Calliope label. His two-CD set of the recordings of the complete sonatas of Prokofiev was awarded the “Grand Prix de la Nouvelle Academie du Disque” in France in 1996. International Piano Quarterly recommended his recording of Moussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” as one of the 14 best in a survey of recordings over the past 75 years.

» Aleksandra (Sasha) Kasman is the national winner of NFMC’s Stillman-Kelley Award, Silver Medalist of the VII International Competition for Young Pianists in Memory of Vladimir Horowitz in Kiev, Ukraine, and a second-place and Young Jury Award winner at the Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition in Columbia, S.C. Recent engagements include Sasha’s solo recitals in New York and Washington, D.C., duo-piano performances with Yakov Kasman at the International Summer Keyboard Institute in Fort Collins, Colo., at the Concert Series at Tulane University in New Orleans, in Orel, Russia, and in Busan, South Korea.
