Poway OnStage is elated to participate as a featured stop in  the Upright & Grand Piano Festival presented by The San Diego Symphony on Friday, January 15, 2016 at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts (15498 Espola Rd Poway, California).  The evening will include a presentation of Liszt’s “Black Gondola,” Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 1,” and Beethoven’s “Piano Concerto No. 5: Emperor,” led by conductor Cristian Macelaru.  The performance will feature renowned and award-winning pianist Jeremy Denk.

Denk is the winner of a 2013 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year award.  Hailed by the New York Times as someone ‘you want to hear no matter what he performs’ he has recently appeared as soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London.

“An important component of this piano festival is to offer an array of acclaimed artists who are at the top of their game—superstars in their own right performing the most exciting repertoire written for the piano”- Tommy Phillips, the Symphony’s Director of Artistic Planning.

Winner of the 2014 Solti Conducting Award, Cristian M?celaru is conductor-in-residence of The Philadelphia Orchestra. He began his tenure with that ensemble as assistant conductor in September 2011, and in recognition of his artistic contributions to the Orchestra, his title was elevated to associate conductor in November 2012.

The Upright & Grand Piano Festival will make its appearance at the Poway Center for Performing Arts (15498 Espola Rd, Poway, CA 92064) at 8 p.m., Friday, January 15, 2016. Tickets are available at: www.powayonstage.org, or by calling the box office at (858) 748-0505.
