The Chopin Project proudly presents World-renowned pianist Matthew Graybil in solo piano performance
DANCES and TALES
This program sits at the intersection of comedy and tragedy, dance and song. It will explore the interaction between the lighthearted and profound sides of a composer's nature. It will also reveal the communion of the two and showcase how these seemingly opposing elements have more in common than we might think. Featuring music of Chopin, Schubert, Brahms, and Liszt.
Pianist, Matthew Graybil
Praised by The New Yorker as an exceptional young artist", and The Southampton Press as "hypnotic and compelling", American pianist Matthew Graybil has performed throughout the United States, Canada, France, Holland, and Mexico in venues such as Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center and Lincoln Center. He has appeared on radio and television including KNYC, WQXR, WWFM, CBS Chicago, the Discovery Channel and PBS.
Since making his orchestral debut at age 14, he has performed with the Fort Worth Symphony and the National Chamber Players among others.
He has been a prize-winner in the MTNA/Yamaha National Piano Competition, the New York Piano Competition, the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts, the Juilliard Gina Bachauer Competition, Missouri Southern International Piano Competition and the Wideman International Piano Competition.
Graybil began his piano studies at age 6 and presented his first recital the following year. He was a pupil of Harvey Wedeen for six years and in 2009, received a Bachelor of Music Degree from the Juilliard School under the tutelage of Jerome Lowenthal. In 2011, he completed the Master's program at Juilliard where he continued t work with Mr. Lowenthal as well as Matti Raekallio.
Graybil's debut album, featuring works by Brahms and Schubert, was released in 2012 as part of the Victor Elmaleh Collection. In a review of the album, Fanfare Magazine wrote that he becomes so at one with the [music] that the line between composer and performer vanishes. Matthew Graybil's playing marks him . . . as one of the most sensitive, poetic young pianists to debut on record in recent memory. A second disc of Chopins Etudes, Opus 10, will be released shortly as part of The Chopin Project® label. Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1987, Matthew Graybil resides in New York City.
