Spanish pianist Joaquin Achucarro opens another season of great piano music in Portland next Sunday, October 10th at 4:00 in the Newmark Theater. We hope you will join us to hear this master of the keyboard and to celebrate the inaugural recital of our 33rd season!
Listen to Achucarro’s recording of the Chopin Prelude in Bb minor, Op. 28 in this recent performance here.
Following on the success of his recent DVD of Brahms First Concerto with Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony, Mr. Achucarro is in the process of completing another Opus Arte DVD. The orchestral portion with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic has already been filmed this month in Berlin, and the recital portion in the Teatro Real in Madrid is to be filmed on October 7, three days before his Portland Piano International appearance. For that reason that it was necessary to cancel his master class in Portland that was originally scheduled for the afternoon of October 9.

“Clearly, there is enough here to heartily recommend this DVD by a man who, with the recent passing of Alicia de Larrocha, is probably the leading pianist from Spain.” Robert Cummings, Classical Net
