Marking the Centennial of Rosalyn Tureck

A young Rosalyn Tureck

Pianist and Bach specialist Rosalyn Tureck was born 100 years ago this week. In 1966 she founded the International Bach Society and in 2001 she established the Tureck International Bach Competition for Young Pianists.

This year's winners performed this past June at the Bruna Walter Auditorium and this week the Young Artists Showcase presents a few highlights from that gala concert. The program also includes performances from the 2013 Keshet Eilon Violin Mastercourse, which made up the Young Artists Chanukah show last week. In this program, we’ll hear music by Ravel and Kreisler as well as a recent piece by pianist and composer Oleg Bogod, who heads up the jazz program at the Jerusalem Conservatory.
