Pianist Haskell Small To Perform Bach's Goldberg Variations

Jeffrey James wrote (March 26, 2003):
Pianist Haskell Small To Perform Bach's Goldberg Variations in Bethesda Maryland on March 29

Pianist Haskell Small will perform J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations on Saturday, March 29, 8 PM at the Briggs Church Building, 5144 Massachusetts Ave. in Bethesda, Maryland as part of the Washington Conservatory of
Music's 2003 Bluthner Piano Series.

This concert is free and open to the public. For directions or more information, please contact the Washington Conservatory of Music at 301-320-2770 or online at http://www.washingtonconservatory.org

Hailed by England's Musical Times for his "dazzlingly prodigious technique", Haskell Small first came to public attention after winning the Pittsburgh Concert Society auditions at the age of 21.

A recipient of a solo recitalist grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and a semifinalist in the Johann Sebastian Bach International Piano Competition, Mr. Small's concerts throughout the United States, including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, National Gallery of Art, the Kennedy Center, and the Spoleto Festival have won him an enthusiastic following. Mr. Small was featured in the PBS television special A Celebration of the Piano, taped at Wolf Trap. In recent seasons, Mr. Small has made several tours of Japan and performed recitals in Paris and London.

Following in the tradition of 18th and 19th century pianist/composers, Haskell Small is also an accomplished composer, who often performs his own works. He has received commissions from such organizations as the
Washington Performing Arts Society, Three Rivers Piano Competition, Georgetown Symphony and Paul Hill Chorale, and he was the winner of the 1999 Marin Ballet Dance Score Competition.

Following Small's premiere performance, Tim Page of The Washington Post lauded the composer's Symphony for Solo Piano as a serious and substantial composition that deserves a permanent place in the keyboard repertory." The composer's recording of Symphony for Solo Piano has also received wonderful reviews, including from Records International at: http://www.recordsinternational.com/RICatalogDec00.html.
