Murray Perahia, piano

Sun Apr 23 2017 3pm
Chan Shun Concert Hall

Murray Perahia’s place among the great pianists of our time is not disputed. “Poetic and tender” and “scrupulous musicianship and elegance” perfectly describe his particular kind of magic. Each and every performance is a revelation.

“Perahia’s virtuosity, never fussy, narcissistic or quirky, generates a heightened sense of drama in whatever he plays. At 67, his gifts as a storyteller have deepened.” – LA Times
