I am excited to present two extremely talented and accomplished musicians for our event. I have personally seen both performing their respective instrument separately and I can't wait to see them playing together. Their impressive bios are provided below.
This specially curated program involves all pieces evoking memories and references of the composer's homelands - Tsintsadtze of Georgia, Dvorak of Bohemia, and Say of Turkey.
Doors open at 3:30pm and music starts at 4pm. This event will end around 7pm. As usual, there will be a plethora of cheese, snacks and wine (provided by the host), as well as a fun evening filled with music and engaging conversation.
About the Artists
Hailed by the Washington Post as “prodigiously gifted … a display of imagination, taste and pianistic firepower far beyond her years,” Anna Han strives to deliver heartfelt performances through a variety of classical piano repertoire. She has given performances at venues such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Alice Tully Hall.
A keen chamber music player, she is a founding member of the Munin Piano Trio, and has recorded for the Steinway label.
Anna received her Bachelor and Masters degrees at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Robert McDonald. As a sophomore, she became the winner of the 2016 Juilliard Gina Bachauer Piano Competition. She received the Professional Diploma at the Royal Academy of Music in London under the tutelage of Christopher Elton, where she was awarded the 2021 Sterndale Bennett Prize. She is currently based in Berlin, where she is pursuing an Artist Diploma at the Barenboim-Said Akademie under the tutelage of Sir András Schiff and Schaghajegh Nostrati.
Violinist Itzhak Perlman has described Leland Ko as someone that “plays with the beauty of sound and subtlety that we don’t often encounter in a cellist of his age,” someone who is “a musician who willingly considers all aspects of music.”
Leland has performed as a soloist and chamber musician in venues such as Merkin Concert Hall and Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall in New York, and Jordan Hall and Sanders Theatre in Boston, as well as throughout Europe. Leland was recently named a recipient of the Presidential Scholar Award at New England Conservatory and the Spark Fund from The Joy of Music Inc., and will be a Young Artist in Residence for American Public Media’s radio program Performance Today in 2023.
Leland was a long-time student of Ronald Lowry and Paul Katz before attending Princeton University, where he graduated with an A.B. in German Literature. He went on to complete an M.M. at The Juilliard School, and is currently pursuing his Artist Diploma at the New England Conservatory under Laurence Lesser.
Leland plays on the ex-Peled, ex-Greenhouse Thomas Dodd from 1790.
