    Gilmore and Cliburn


    A friend wrote recently to alert me to Kirill Gerstein’s recognition as a Gilmore Artist, and also asked if Portland Piano had presented any of the other pianists recognized by the Gilmore Foundation.

     

    Yes, we have presented these wonderful and varied pianists from the very beginning. Piotr Anderszewski appeared in 2001, Davis Owen Norris on two occasions – 1998 and 2000, and Ingrid Fliter this past season.  The latest artist to be chosen, Kirill Gerstein, appeared on the series in 2004.

     

    The two remaining on the list, Ralf Gothoni and Leif Ove Andsnes are remarkable talents, but so far the stars have not been aligned for hosting them in Portland.

     

    The Gilmore is unique (and I don’t use that word often) in that it is not a competition in the usual sense.  In the words of the foundation, “Gilmore Award candidates are not judged in a competition, but rather they are evaluated discreetly and over a period of time and numerous performances for their musicianship and performing abilities.”

     

    That makes for some exciting stories from award winners who didn’t even know they were in the running!

     

     

    But we also present “real”competition winners. I’ll write later about the medalists we have hosted from the most prestigious piano competition in the U.S., the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.  That event is held every four years in Ft. Worth, Texas.  We have already presented two of the 2009 finalists in Portland, and will announce a date for a third who will perform here later this year.

     

    By the way, PPI has already reserved a block of tickets for the Fourteenth Van Cliburn Competition in 2013.  We had almost 40 patrons attending the 2009 competition, and plan to travel with about the same number in a few years.  Start making plans!

     

    But how many pianists have we presented on this series in the 31 years of its existence?  The number is astounding.
