Chopin Society presents pianist Imogen Cooper
Starts 3:00 PM
Sunday Oct 6, 2013
Mairs Concert Hall, Music Building
Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center
Widely recognized as a pianist of virtuosity and poetic poise, British pianist Imogen Cooper was educated at the Paris Conservatoire and later influenced by Alfred Brendel, one of her most important mentors. She has played with all the major British orchestras and has particularly close relationships playing and directing with the Northern Sinfonia and Britten Sinfonia. A committed chamber musician, she performs regularly with the Belcea Quartet, and her lieder work with baritone Wolfgang Holzmair has been called “one of the greatest living partnerships in song.” In the concert hall and recordings, Schubert has become her ‘signature’ composer, and during 2008 and 2009 she performed the last six years of Schubert's solo works as part of the International Piano Series in London. In 2013, she makes a return to Schubert, performing a cycle of his solo works at the Wigmore Hall. Her many public honors include a 2007 CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for her services to music and an honorary Doctorate in Music from Exeter University. This will be Cooper’s third appearance for the Chopin Society.
