On Saturday, November 9 at 4 p.m. Pianist Sara Daneshpour will join us once again to share her formidable technique and musicality. She’s played a virtuosic programs of works by Scarlatti, Scriabin, Ravel, Granados and Prokofiev. Ms. Daneshpour has performed not only in her native city of Washington D.C., but also in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Russia, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Denmark, and Sweden. She has been heard on stages of such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Carnegie Hall in New York and at the Great Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow.
Ms. Daneshpour’s performances have earned high accolades of audiences and critics alike. The Washington Post wrote of her performance with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra “…she created transfixing poetry. And she found delightful details in passagework and incidents that other pianists treat as routine.” The Baltimore Sun stated that Sara “delivered a powerhouse account of Tchaikovsky’s Concerto No.1 producing enough tone for two pianists in the process”, while The Mercury News called her performance “…sensational. Strength, finesse, passion; it was all there.”
