Cristina Ortiz - Cambridge Piano Weekend
14 September 2018, 19:30 - 21:30
As part of the Cambridge Piano Weekend 2018, the celebrated Brazilian pianist Cristina Ortiz gives a recital of music including Schumann’s Kinderszenen, Chopin’s B minor Sonata, works by Grieg, Debussy and Albeniz, and a potpourri of encores as performed by the great pianist and teacher Magda Tagliaferro. Cristina Ortiz’ natural musicality, masterful craftsmanship and commitment to refined playing have ensured her a place among the most respected pianists in the world. Throughout her extensive and varied career Cristina Ortiz has performed with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, Philharmonia and Royal Concertgebouw orchestras, and many others.
‘Ortiz is a spontaneous improviser, an unpredictable lioness of the piano; a powerful player but one who hugs or caresses her instrument at will’ (Wprost).
Cristina Ortiz will also be giving public Masterclasses and student classes during the Cambridge Piano Weekend (14-16 September). This exciting new piano festival aims to continue and perpetuate the pianistic ideas and ideals of the legendary French-Swiss pianist Alfred Cortot.
