Alessio Bax presents a masterclass featuring students from the NEC piano department. Alessio Bax is without a doubt “among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public” (Gramophone). He catapulted to prominence with First Prize wins at both the Leeds and Hamamatsu International Piano Competitions, and is now a familiar face on four continents, not only as a recitalist and chamber musician, but as a concerto soloist who has appeared with more than 100 orchestras, including the London and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, Dallas and Cincinnati Symphonies, NHK Symphony in Japan, St. Petersburg Philharmonic with Yuri Temirkanov, and the City of Birmingham Symphony with Sir Simon Rattle. Alessio makes his Boston Symphony Orchestra debut January 10, 2019 playing Mozart’s C-minor concerto (K.491) with Sir Andrew Davis.
This masterclass is made possible by Edith Michelson Milender in honor of her mother Mildred Levinson ‘29.
