Natasha Paremski, piano & Kate Emerman, soprano: An Evening of Music from the Turn of the Twentieth Century, with works by Chopin, Debussy, Gershwin, and Rachmaninoff.
With an astonishing musical sensibility and intellectual curiosity alongside her flawless technique, 20-year-old pianist Natasha Paremski has established herself as an artist of rare breadth and appeal. Natasha began her piano studies at the age of 4 with Nina Malikova at the Andreyev School of Music in Moscow. She studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music before moving to New York to study with Pavlina Dokovska at Mannes College of Music, from which she graduated in 2007. With a strong focus on new music, Natashas growing repertoire reflects an artistic maturity beyond her years. At the suggestion of John Corigliano, she began playing his Piano Concerto and is performing it with the Colorado Symphony in the 2007-08 season and at the American Symphony Orchestra League conference in June 2008. Her growing list of awards includes the Prix Montblanc 2007, the 2006 Gilmore Young Artist Award, top prize in the 2002 Bronislaw Kaper Awards sponsored by the Los Angeles Philharmonic; top prize in the Young Artists in Carnegie Hall 2000 International Piano Festival, and many others.

She has performed as the soprano soloist in Brahmss Ein Deutsches Requiem, Bachs Cantata BWV 192, Orffs Carmina Burana, and Handels Messiah. Kate was a featured performer in the Mannes Late Romantics Festival in 2005, the Bach and the Baroque Legacy Festival in 2006, Beethoven: Influence and Immortality Festival in 2007, and the Pianist as Composer Festival this year. This past spring, she performed the role of Aphrodite in the world premiere of Phaedra and Hippolytus, a new opera by Christopher Park. Kate has collaborated on many occasions with composer Terry Champlin, including the world premiere of his new song cycle The Blue Estuaries in 2007.
