Acclaimed as technically flawless and impeccably musical, Ukrainian pianist Illia Ovcharenko opens our 35th season with a performance certain to leave audience members breathless.
He has won over 20 international piano competitions, including the Kyiv International Piano Competition and the 2022 Honens International Piano Competition, and has performed (and sold out!) twice at Carnegie Hall this year alone. Ovcharenko has garnered global praise for his technical mastery, deep understanding of musical text, and engaging stage presence.
In this emotionally rich program, Ovcharenko showcases his virtuosity and brilliance through Domenico Scarlatti’s evocative B-minor sonatas, the passionate Franz Liszt B-minor Sonata, Valentin Silvestrov’s introspective Bagatelles, Levko Revutsky’s emotive Preludes and B-minor Sonata, and the triumphant and exhilarating Heroic Polonaise by Frédéric Chopin.
Experience the exceptional artistry of Illia Ovcharenko, his profound range, and the variety of his repertoire – a not-to-be-missed performance.
(Wednesday) 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
