Michael Brown, piano

Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 4pm


"A young piano visionary" The New York Times

Equally acclaimed as a pianist and composer, Michael Brown has been described as “one of the most refined of all pianist-composers” (International Piano) and “one of the leading figures in the current renaissance of performer-composers” (The New York Times).  He refers to his program as “Boats and Barcarolles”; it will include Chopin’s Barcarolle and Ravel’s Miroirs, as well as works by Liszt, Bartok, and his own composition.
