Einav Yarden, piano

Hailed for her Haydn interpretations, Israeli pianist Einav Yarden brings two selections by the composer to her 92Y debut. Beginning with Schumann’s late-period Fantasy Pieces, Yarden then turns to Haydn’s buoyant F Major sonata, before performing Bartók’s dance-inflected Burlesques. Two more “fantastic” pieces conclude the program: Haydn’s Fantasia, based on an Austrian folk tune, precedes Schumann’s Fantasie, which displays the composer’s eye on the present in its dedication to Franz Liszt; and Schumann’s love of history, with its echoes of Beethoven.

“A probing, incisive pianist with a beautiful sound and an impressively transparent touch.”
