Acclaimed pianist Sergio Tiempo beckons us on a musical journey through Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, the United States and Poland. This performer, who rose to prominence at age 14 after giving a concert at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, will illustrate the breadth of his energy and talent in his interpretation of Moleiro’s Joropo, Copland’s blues and Chopin’s lyricism, performing the latter composer’s monumental Piano Sonata no. 3, a work virtually in a class of its own in the repertoire for piano.
