Jon Nakamatsu, piano

“The pianist Jon Nakamatsu plays with the calm assurance that comes of having both a solid technique and a gentle, introspective, interpretive spirit.” -The New York Times

Since his dramatic 1997 Cliburn gold medal triumph, Jon Nakamatsu’s brilliant but unassuming musicianship and eclectic repertoire have made him a clear favorite throughout the world on the concert circuit. He maintains a very active touring schedule with orchestra performances, chamber collaborations, and solo recitals-as well as in the recording studio.

Program: SCHUBERT Impromptus, D. 899, op. 90, nos. 3 & 2; CHOPIN Sonata No. 3 in B Minor, op. 58; SCHUMANN Carnaval, op. 9
