Pianist from Transylvania University to perform at CU
By Jesse Harp, student news writer, Office of University Communications
CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY. Pianist Dr. Greg Partain of Transylvania University will be performing a recital titled "Beethoven Heroics"at Campbellsville University's The Gheens Recital Hall in Gosser Fine Arts Center, 210 University Drive, Campbellsville, KY, on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 7pmCT/8pmET,
Partain will perform two Beethoven piano sonatas - Sonata No. 21 in C Major, Op. 53 "Waldstein" and Sonata No. 23 in F Minor, Op. 57 "Appassionata." The concert is free and open to the public.
Partain will also give a master class for Campbellsville University's piano students on Friday, February 24, from 9amCT/10amET until 11amCT/12pmNoonET at The Gheens Recital Hall.
Partain, who has spent three decades on the concert stage, has performed as a piano recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber music collaborator throughout the United States, Germany, Poland, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Russia and Greece. He has acquired critical acclaim in the United States and all over the world for his wide-range of live CD recordings.
"BBC Music Magazine" describes Partain as a "gifted pianist," and states "every item is intelligently and sympathetically played."
A writer from classical music review magazine "American Record Guide" describes some of Partain's work as, "some of the best Scarlatti I've ever heard. These approach the same level as Horowitz's legendary recordings." "All Music Guide" depicts his ensembles as embodying, "brilliant clarity, crisp articulation and a magnificent sense of placement."
In 2015, Partian completed a sabbatical project in which he presented Beethoven's Odyssey, a seven-recital series comprising 22 Beethoven piano sonatas, with performances in Portland, OR; Boston, MA.; Chicago, IL, Lexington, KY. and other United States cities.
Partian is also a composer of his own work, which includes "Requiem," a large scale concert piece for chorus and orchestra, "Stabat Mater Dolorosa" for a cappella chorus and "Come to the Garden in Spring," a song cycle for soprano and piano based on spiritual love poems of Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th century Islamic mystic.
After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance from the University of Washington and master's and doctoral degrees from The University of Texas at Austin as a Javits Fellowship recipient, he began teaching at Transylvania University in Lexington in 1991. He received a Bingham Award for Excellence in Teaching at Transylvania.
For more information on the concert, contact Dr. Wesley Roberts, professor of music, at (270) 789-5287 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
