It is with great regret that Murray Perahia has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming solo recitals in North America. A sudden medical setback has prevented him from performing publicly. He looks forward to returning to the stage in the not too distant future, as soon as his recovery is complete. Pianist Vladimir Feltmsan has agreed to step in for Mr. Perahia.

“...quite simply an amazing pianist!” —The New York Times

One of the most versatile and commanding musicians of our time, the incomparable Vladimir Feltsman brings a program of some of the most beloved and well-known pieces of Romantic repertoire, including Beethoven’s “Pathetique” Sonata, with its gentle and spacious slow movement and tempestuous finale. The program’s second half is devoted to several of Chopin’s most popular nocturnes and his Ballade No. 3.

Ever since his arrival in the United States in 1987 after eight years of artistic repression during the Soviet regime, Vladimir Feltsman has been fascinating audiences with his remarkable technique and penetrating interpretations of a vast repertoire, encompassing music from the Baroque to 21st-century composers. As The New York Times observed, Feltsman is “a master of reinventing himself.” Though initially promoted as a Russian Romantic firebrand, Feltsman has also been praised for his interpretations of works by Schubert, Schumann, Messiaen, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Mussorgsky and Mozart.
