Tureck Bach Competition Winners Perform
Wednesday, March 23, 2016
Rosalyn Tureck was a renowned pianist and harpsichordist who specialized in music by Johann Sebastian Bach, as heard recently on David Dubal’s Reflections from the Keyboard. She also founded the International Bach Society in New York City in 1966, now known as the Tureck Bach Research Institute.
On Wednesday at 9 pm, tune in to hear Tureck's legacy carried on by winners of the fourth Rosalyn Tureck International Bach Competition for Young Pianists. These talented emerging artists performed a gala concert last October at the New York Public Library’s Bruno Walter Auditorium.
The concert began with performances of Bach's keyboard works by 10-year-old Connor Sung and 12-year-old Anthony Reznikovsky. These were followed by several contemporary works by older performers, including a piece by Lowell Liebermann and Zhang Zhao’s impressionistic portrait China Dreams.
