Peter Frankl performs piano concertos on Horowitz Piano Series Nov. 16

Concert also features Linden String Quartet & tenor James Taylor

The Horowitz Piano Series at the Yale School of Music presents a concert by the pianist Peter Frankl on Wednesday, November 16. While the series most often presents solo recitals, Frankl will be joined by the Linden String Quartet and double bassist Gregory Robbins. The recital will take place at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall, located in Sprague Memorial Hall at 470 College Street.

Frankl will perform two concertos with the string players: Mozart’s Piano Concerto in F major, K. 413, and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21. Frankl will also play solo piano works of both composers: Mozart’s Menuet in D major, K. 355, and Sonata in D major, K. 576, and Chopin’s Fantasy in F minor, Op. 49.

Frankl has been described by Auditorium as “not a mere pianist, but a true artist.” The Linden Quartet, currently the graduate quartet-in-residence at the Yale School of Music, has been praised for its “remarkable depth of technique and brilliantly nuanced, sumptuous tonality….” (MusicWeb International). Bassist Gregory Robbins ’12MM was selected as a member of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. MORE

ABOUT STUDENT CHAMBER MUSIC AT YSM

The Yale School of Music is unique in that all performance faculty coach chamber music, and all students are involved in chamber music for their entire tenure at the School. Ensembles come together each semester and receive weekly coachings from distinguished faculty and guest artists. Chamber groups often perform in the Lunchtime Chamber Music concerts, which take place at both Morse Recital Hall and the Center for British Art, and in the Vista series, in which performances are enhanced by spoken commentary on the music. Students also take part in the annual chamber music competition, whose winners are featured in an annual concert on the Oneppo Chamber Music Series.
