Peter Serkin, piano

Eminent pianist Peter Serkin, long known for his probing and insightful programs, and a favorite of 92Y audiences, performs two pieces of late Mozart: the enigmatic and richly chromatic Adagio in B Minor, thought to be a musical memorial of his father, Leopold; and the courtly Sonata in B-flat Major, redolent of the soon-to-be-composed The Magic Flute. Serkin concludes his program with a work of Johann Sebastian Bach — one of his only pieces published within his lifetime — the seminal Goldberg Variations.

“The qualities of mind, fingers and spirit that make him such a supreme interpreter of new and 20th century music are the qualities that make him so satisfying a Bach and Beethoven pianist too.”
