Russian born Igor Lovchinsky who lives in the US and who pleased the Rising Stars Piano Series 3 years ago returns for the 10th anniversary of the popular series. He will perform works by Chopin, Prokofiev and Liszt-Horowitz. Mr. Lovchinky is well known in Southampton having performed at Pianofest and at the Rogers Memorial Library several times. Chicago’s “Time Out International” compares his masterful hands to those of Walter Gieseking and Marta Argerich. No more needs to be said.
“Lovchinsky’s impressive debut recording is chock-full of an elder statesman’s virtuosity.”
“Lovchinsky’s knuckle-busting feels purposeful and meditative, the brand of a modest but limitlessly talented musician.”
“…as steady a hand as a Walter Gieseking or Martha Argerich…”
