This fall the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will launch the Salon Series, six consecutive Friday evening concerts featuring an international lineup of award-winning musicians, beginning on September 27.
Michael Brown will be the first to perform, on Friday, September 27, at 6 p.m. Declared by The New York Times as “a young piano visionary,” he has won multiple awards and has performed all over the world. His Parrish concert will include an original composition as well as pieces by Beethoven, Schubert and maverick 20th-century Catalan composer Federico Mompou.
Steven Lin, an immediately engaging and imaginative young Taiwanese-American pianist, will perform on October 4. Mr. Lin, who was accepted into the Juilliard Pre-College Division on a full scholarship at the age of 10, made his debut with the New York Philharmonic in Avery Fisher Hall at the age of 13. The pianist’s broad musical interests allow him to move with ease between concertos, recitals and chamber music. He will perform works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Liszt at the Parrish.
Additional performers include: Romanian-born violinist Irina Muresanu, on October 11; Belarus-born pianist Liza Stepanova, on October 18; New York City-based pianist Inna Faliks, who will play on October 25; and Bulgarian-born pianist Nadejda Vlaeva, whose performance will conclude the series on November 1.
“The Salon Series offers a casual environment to experience and enjoy classical and contemporary music by a new generation of fresh, innovative master musicians,” according to Parrish Director Terrie Sultan.
Each Salon Series performance begins at 6 p.m. and will run approximately one hour, without intermission, and will be followed by an opportunity to meet the artists. The Café by Art of Eating will be open before and after the concerts. Tickets are $20 or $10 for Parrish Members. To learn more, visit parrishart.org.
