Howland Center welcomes back Austrian pianist
The Howland Chamber Music Circle’s Piano Festival comes to an end with a return performance by Austrian pianist Till Fellner.
Last summer, Fellner stepped in for an indisposed Evgeny Kissin at the Salzburg Festival and received a standing ovation and critical acclaim. As artist-in-residence with the Bamberg Symphony in the 2013–14 season, he played numerous programs with that ensemble, including concerts with Herbert Blomsted and Manfred Honeck.
Other highlights include concerts with the Munich Philharmonic under Kent Nagano and the NHK Symphony Orchestra under Sir Neville Mariner, as well as recitals and chamber music performances in Austria, Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the U.K., Russia, Japan and Malaysia.
For his concert at the Howland Center, Fellner has chosen to play two works by Mozart: the Rondo No. 3 in A minor, K. 511, and the Piano Sonata No. 4 in E-flat major, K. 282; Prelude and Fugue Nos. 9, 10, 11, and 12 from J.S. Bach’s The Well Tempered Clavier; a work called Traum Protokoll (Dream Journal) by the Macedonian composer and performance artist Aleksandar Stankovski; and Kreisleriana, Op. 16, by Robert Schumann.
The concert will take place on Sunday, March 8, 4 p.m., at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St. in Beacon, and will be followed by a reception to meet the artist.
Tickets are limited, but can be reserved by calling 845-765-3012 (this is a new phone number). Information on this and all other presentations by the Howland Chamber Music Circle can be found at howlandmusic.org.
