Salon Series, the Parrish Art Museum’s concert program featuring multi-award winning, world-class artists, has returned for its 9th year with livestream performances from the museum’s Lichtenstein Theater. Co-programmed with Louis Meisel, the next concert in the series features Bulgarian-born pianist Nadejda Vlaeva performing at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 21.
Vlaeva has won major international awards — including first prize, Liszt Competition in Lucca, Italy; third prize, International Liszt Competition in Budapest; and the Yamaha Award for best Brahms interpretation — and has performed solo recitals and with orchestras throughout Europe and the United States. In her Salon Series concert on May 21, Vlaeva will play an original work: “Between Two Worlds,” in addition to works by Late Romantic composers Alexander Scriabin(1872-1915), “Sonata-Fantasia” No. 2 Op. 19; and Franz Liszt (1811-1886) “Liebestraum” No. 3 and Sonata in B minor. The program also includes two works by her compatriot, Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov (1899-1978): “Exotic Prelude” Op. 17 No. 4, and “Evening Song (In modo arabo).”
Individual tickets for the livestream concerts are $20 ($15 members) a package price of both concerts is $35 ($25 members) at parrishart.org.
