Piano virtuoso and recording artist Awadagin Pratt has attracted audiences to classical music around the world with his “enormous dynamic range… [encompassing] grave quiet to immense thunder.” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer) Pratt was the first student in Peabody Conservatory history to receive diplomas in three performance areas: piano, violin and conducting. In 1992, Pratt became the first Black pianist to win the coveted Naumburg International Piano Competition, propelling a 30-year career that includes three performances at The White House, recitals at The Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and guest appearances with countless esteemed orchestras in the U.S. and abroad. Pratt is a professor of piano at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music where he is also the artistic director of the Art of the Piano festival. Come celebrate Black History Month with this exciting program featuring Liszt’s Piano Sonata in B Minor; Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in D Major, Op. 23, No. 4; Chopin’s Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62, No. 1; and more!
