Great Music

Zsolt Bognar was at once extraordinary and authentic in his performance Wednesday night of Tchaikovsky's 2nd Piano Concerto at Kulas Hall, on the Cleveland  Institute of Music campus.  Bognar, a student of Sergei Babayan, was passionate in his interpretation of the rarely heard concerto in G Major.  His keyboard fingering provided an awesome display of his growing physical and mental virtuosity. 

Playing to a packed hall, Bognar showed why he was winner of the 2005 CIM Concerto Competition and has been entertaining and stimulating audiences in Boston, New York, Austria, Holland.  A second-year student in the Artist Diploma Program, Bognar brought to the hall the energy of classical music and a reminder, when none is needed, why Cleveland is a great music city, for all audiences.  The program, that included Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (orchestrated by Ravel) and Beethoven's The Creatures of Prometheus, was free.
