WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The School of Music at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts presents renowned guest artist Ann Schein, Piano, who has been making music, performing and communicating with audiences around the world for 60 years.
A student of legendary pianists Dame Myra Hess, Mieczyslaw Munz and Arthur Rubinstein, Ann Schein continues a Romantic tradition of pianism which is all but forgotten.
About Ann Schein, The Washington Post has written “Thank heaven for Ann Schein…what a relief it is to hear a pianist who, with no muss or fuss, simply reaches right into the heart of whatever she is playing – and creates music so powerful you cannot tear yourself away.”
From her first recordings for Kapp Records, and her highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall recital debut as an artist on the Sol Hurok roster, Ann Schein’s amazing career has earned her high praise in major American and European cities and in more than 50 countries around the world.
She has performed with conductors including George Szell, James Levine, Seiji Ozawa, James dePreist, David Zinman, Stanislaw Skrowacewski, and Sir Colin Davis, and with major orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Baltimore Symphony, the Washington National Symphony, the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. She performed at The White House during the Kennedy administration.
With the great soprano, Jessye Norman, Schein has appeared in cities across the United States, as well as a tour in Brazil. The artists are featured in songs of Alban Berg on the Sony Classical label.
From 1980 to 2000, she was on the piano faculty of the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. She has been an artist-faculty member of the Aspen Music Festival and School since 1984.
Her recent recordings include an album of solo Schumann works on Ivory Classics, featuring the Arabeske, the Humoreske, and the Davidsbündlertänze. An all-Chopin CD on MSR Classics includes the 24 Preludes, Opus 28, and the 3rd Sonata in b minor, Opus 58.
This is a one-time only performance on October 13th at 2 pm at Watson Hall on the UNC School of the Arts campus, 1533 S. Main Street, Winston-Salem, NC.
