Salon Series, the Parrish Art Museum’s classical music program featuring world-class artists performing in an intimate, casual setting that evokes the salons of Paris, presents Bulgarian-born pianist Nadejda Vlaeva on Friday, October 19 at 6pm. Vlaeva has won major international awardsincluding First Prize, Liszt Competition in Lucca, Italy; Third Prize, International Liszt Competition in Budapest; and the Yamaha Award for best Brahms interpretationand has performed solo recitals and with orchestras throughout Europe and the United States. 

Salon Series creates an interactive environment for master musicians of classical and contemporary music to share their performances in new ways,” says Senior Curator of Special Projects and Arts Reach, Corinne Erni. “The audience is invited to engage in a dialogue with the musicians and learn more about their creative process and program choices.”

Vlaeva’s Salon Series program begins with two compositions by Franz Schubert (1797-1828) based on the composer’s vocal works: Serenade, from his song cycle Schwanengesang (“Swan Song”)  transcribed for solo piano by Franz Liszt; followed by Wanderer Fantasy in C Major, Op. 15,   considered Schubert’s most technically demanding piano composition for the piano, based on the art song The Wanderer.

Following a brief intermission, Vlaeva will play two works by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893):  Dumka in C minor, Op. 59, and Chant elegiaque, Op. 72 No. 14. The program ends with Réminiscences de Don Juan, S. 418, the extremely technically demanding opera fantasy for piano by Polish-born composer Franz Liszt (1811-1886), based on themes from Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

This Salon Series concert will feature a guest pianist: Vlaeva’s daughter Rosalia Malik, who will play Fantaisie Impromptu in C-sharp minor, Op. 66 by Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849); and Toccata by Vitali Filippenko (b. 1939).

Salon Series is generously supported by Louis K. and Susan P. Meisel, Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder, The Jeannette and H. Peter Kriendler Charitable Trust, Concert Artists Guild, and Pro Musicis, and sponsored by Yamaha Artist Services, Inc.

Friday nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group, BNB Bank, and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
