Sally Pinkas

from Brahms to Beaudoin

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Music Department season. This is an archived view.

An enthralling musical journey spanning centuries and continents from our resident pianist.

21/22 Music Department

For her solo performance at the Hop this fall, Pinkas flexes her repertoire muscle. She starts in 19th century Europe with Johannes Brahms' masterpiece, the expansive Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op 24, and follows with selections from Debussy's evocative Préludes, Book I. We are then transported to early 20th century Brazilian art music with pieces from two of its most important figures: Heitor Villa-Lobos and Francisco Mignone. Pinkas finally ties the present to the past with Dartmouth's own Richard Beaudoin's "La fille floutée", a 2010 work based on a historic performance of another Debussy Prélude "…La fille aux cheveux de lin."

Following her London debut at Wigmore Hall, Israeli-born pianist Sally Pinkas has garnered acclaim for her performances as soloist and chamber musician. Among highlights are performances with the Boston Pops, the Aspen Philharmonia and New York's Jupiter Symphony, and at the festivals of Marlboro, Aspen, Rockport (USA), Pontlevoy (France), Havana (Cuba) and HCMC Conservatory (Vietnam). From a first-ever performance of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto in Bandung, Indonesia, to premieres of George Rochberg's monumental Circles of Fire for two pianos in Russia and Nigeria, and a revival of rarely-heard 19th-century Filipino Salon Music in its birth city Manila, Pinkas commands a wide repertoire and shares it enthusiastically with young pianists through masterclasses and workshops.
