On Sunday, April 27th, Ukrainian pianist, Pavel Gintov will perform a concert in the sanctuary of the Jewish Temple. The one hour concert will begin at 3:00 pm. A reception will follow. Continuing the long tradition of the Fuhrer-Bindursky cultural arts series, this program is free and open to the public. No tickets needed. Open seating.
Pavel Gintov brings to life musical stories. Described by international music critics as a “poet of the keyboard” and a “musical storyteller,” his Alexandria program will include:
Haydn; Debussy; Chopin; Ernest Bloch; Scriabin; Skoryk; and Beethoven – a vivid mixture of many cultures, rhythms, and moods. His charming style illuminates heartfelt introspection, combining a clean and brilliant technique with marked sensitivity. Learn more at www.gintov.com.
