Adams Foundation Concert
Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012
4 p.m. at York Performance Hall
American pianist Jon Nakamatsu is known throughout the United States and abroad as a pianist who, in the words of The New York Times, “has stunning technical control and can do anything at the piano he wants.” A California German language high school teacher with no formal conservatory training, Mr. Nakamatsu gave an electrifying performance of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, plus aristocratic readings of the works of Chopin and other composers which won him the Gold Medal at the 1997 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. He has performed in cities around the world and some of the most noted venues in the United States, including Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. His recordings range from the sonatas of Josef Wölfl, an almost forgotten contemporary of Beethoven, to George Gershwin’s Concerto in F and Rhapsody in Blue, a best-seller reaching the top ten on the Billboard classical music charts.
