The Miami International Piano Festival is for pianists what “The Voice” is for pop vocalists – except without the fiercely competitive component. Celebrating its 15th Anniversary Season in 2012, and true to its mission to “discover, promote, support and document the great masters of the keyboard,” three compelling new artists will make their first-time appearances on Florida stages. Each was chosen for their unique ability to communicate fresh interpretations of classical piano literature. And each has a fascinating story:
Joseph Moog (Germany) – Thursday, May 17 – 8:00 pm
The 2012 International Classical Music Awards named Joseph Moog “Young Artist of the Year.” A combination of flawless virtuosic technique and individual approach to programming single out Joseph Moog, at the age of 24, as one of the most exciting young pianists today. Joseph Moog knows instinctively that making music is a life, not a career. When asked if he ever gets daunted by the success he’s already achieved at such a young age, Moog replies, “I never really intended to be a professional pianist, I just played and the love kept growing over the years. So my dream is just to keep going, to play more internationally, to develop personal relationships with conductors and orchestras. I really just love to do it.” In March 2011 he made his North American debut performing Liszt Concerto no. 1 with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra in Denver. For his Florida debut Joseph has selected the following pieces:
SCARLATTI/TAUSIG Pastorale E minor, Sonate G minor
MOZART Sonate No. 8 A minor KV 310
SCHUMANN Concert Etudes after Paganini - Caprices Variations
SCHUBERT/LISZT Variations on “Trauerwalzer”
BELLINI/LISZT Réminiscences de Norma

David Kadouch (France) Friday, May 18 – 8:00 p.m.
“Laureate of the 2009 Leeds International Pianoforte Competition and the 2005 Beethoven Competition in Bonn, David Kadouch is poised for a healthy career that already includes many concerts in the coming year. Having heard his highly auspicious New York recital debut this weekend, I was happy to discover that he is an artist of distinct individuality, not at all a typical contest prizewinner, but an engaging musician.” -Rorianne Schrade for New York Concert Review
At 26 years old, David Kadouch is already a veteran of many of the world’s finest stages. At age 13 he played under the direction of Itzhak Perlman at the Metropolitan Hall and then the Carnegie Hall in New York. At 14 he was invited to play at the Bolshoi Hall of the Tchaikovski Conservatory in Moscow. In 2011 International Classical Music Awards named him Young Artist of the Year.
“There was color, style, shade and touch in an ensemble which left his audience aware they were watching a great musician of tomorrow, today.” Jane Mcintosh for Bachtrack.com
David Kadouch will make his Florida debut with a performance of:
HAYDN Andante with Variations in F-, Hob.XVII:6 ('Un piccolo divertimento')
DEBUSSY Two Preludes: Les fées sont d'exquises danseuses; Ce qu'a vu le vent d'ouest
MEDTNER Sonata Reminiscenza in A minor Op.38
TANEIEV Prélude & Fugue Op,. 129 in G sharp minor
MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition
