Artist: Andrius Žlabys

Grammy-nominated pianist Andrius Žlabys, has received international acclaim for his appearances with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Rotterdam Symphony, and Philharmonic Orchestra of Buenos Aires.

Born in Lithuania and trained at the Curtis Institute of Music, Žlabys’s artistry has received numerous accolades from the press in the U.S. and Europe, including the The New York Times, which called his playing “…tasteful, communicative and utterly absorbing,” and The Strad, which stated: “His easy virtuosity is a wonder.” The Philadelphia Inquirer once said of his performance of Bach, “… you couldn’t escape the notion that the pianist was acting as Bach’s ventriloquist ….”

Žlabys showcases his multi-faceted talents with an elegant program that travels gracefully from Bach to Beethoven and finishes with Prokofiev.
Program:
J.S. Bach Partita No 6 in e minor
L.v. Beethoven Sonata op.31 no. 2 in D minor
S. Prokofiev Sonata No. 7, Op. 83
