Markus Groh, piano

Sharing the same birthday with celebrated pianists Alfred Brendel and Maurizio Pollini, Markus Groh, the first-ever German winner of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition, has proven himself among the finest pianists in the world. "Among the pianists laying claim to Liszt as a central figure in their repertoire, Groh's fingers and sense of comprehension set a new modern standard" (Philadelphia Inquirer). Mr. Groh's program will include works by Beethoven, Golijov, Hindemith, Liszt, and Liszt/Wagner. 

Performance Timing:  Part One - 53 min.; Intermission - 18 min.; Part Two - 41 min.
