PIANIST/VIOLINIST

Repertoire and Programming

 

Typically, my recitals are split programs- half piano, half violin. Depending on availability of piano or collaborative pianist, all-piano or all-violin programs can be provided as well. I have performed both a piano and violin concerto with orchestra in the same concert, though I understand that it is not standard orchestra programming. In recitals, I usually prefer to speak briefly before each half to describe and contextualize the works being performed for the most thorough listening experience.

The following list is a sampling of works learned and performed throughout my studies.
