Behzod Abduraimov, piano (92Y Debut)

Behzod Abduraimov, whose solo recital on the main stage of Carnegie Hall two years ago at just 26 was hailed by The New York Times as “brilliant,” returns to New York City for the first time since that dazzling appearance to make his 92Y debut. In a program that will enthrall any lover of piano music, Abduraimov showcases Liszt as both transcriber and composer, first in his virtuosic and moving transcription of Wagner’s Isolde’s Liebestod, then in his unrivalled masterwork, the Sonata in B Minor. The recital concludes with Prokofiev’s own transcription of ten pieces from his ballet Romeo and Juliet.

“A pianist who has it all: silky delicacy, mighty thunder-power, rare clarity and the ability to draw a remarkable variety of tonal colors from the instrument.”
