Armstrong’s Piano in the Arts Series, a celebration of the possibilities in the ivory keys, comes to a sensational close on April 20.
With a focus on tradition, Marina Lomazov and Joseph Rackers will play solo and duo works by Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Bolcom, and more. The pianists rose to prominence when they earned Second Prize at the Sixth Biennial Ellis Duo Piano Competition. At the time, it was the only national competition for piano duos in the United States. Since their win, the team has performed throughout the U.S. and Europe, taking the stage at the Kiev Interational Music Festival, Varna International Piano Festival, Moulin d’Ande Arts Festival, Burgos International Music Festival, and Infiorata di Genzano.
Before the concert, Lomazov and Rackers, who both hold the Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Piano Performance from Eastman School of Music, will offer a master class on April 19 at 4:30 p.m. The class is open to the public.
