French Pianist Philippe Bianconi presents "The Golden Age of French Music" [fr]
Presented by the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans at 7:00pm on Saturday, April 7 2018 at Esplanade Studios (2540 Esplanade Avenue, New Orleans)
French pianist Philippe Bianconi has been described as an artist whose playing is “always close to the soul of the music, filling the space with poetry and life” (Washington Post), “an extraordinary exhibition of musicianship, technical control and good taste which lent the music a freshness, immediacy and conviction one all too seldom encounters” (The London Times).
After winning the Silver Medal in the Seventh Van Cliburn International Competition, Bianconi made an acclaimed recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 1987 and, since then, has enthralled audiences and critics throughout the world.
