“Bidini’s approach is… tempered with warmth and occasionally spiced with the unexpected.” — San Antonio-Express News
Italian pianist Fabio Bidini will perform two of the most iconic solo piano works ever composed. Bidini will perform Beethoven’s “Waldstein” sonata, considered to be one of Beethoven’s most technically demanding works, a whirlwind of energy that will leave you breathless. He will also close the concert with Schumann’s Carnaval, a playful selection paying hommage to the characters of the commedia dell’arte.
Bidini, one of this generation’s greatest pianists, has performed with major orchestras around the globe, including the London Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Budapest Festival Orchestra, and many others. Do not miss an evening of piano perfection!
A Pre-Concert Conversation will be presented by Dr. William Everett prior to the concert.
