Arts in the Village Presents Pianist Misuzu Tanaka on November 11

On Saturday, November 11, Arts in the Village welcomes pianist Misuzu Tanaka, who will be appearing in this series for the first time. Ms. Tanaka has established herself as an artist of remarkable individuality with a rare combination of poetic sensitivity and breathtaking virtuosity. For this concert, she will be performing works by Beethoven, Liszt, and Janáček.

Ms. Tanaka has appeared in prestigious concert venues throughout the world, from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig and Mozart’s Museum at Villa Bertramka in Prague to Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center in New York City. She is also a respected regular performer for Music from the Frederick Collection, a leading North American venue for performance on historical instruments. Enjoying an active solo career in the US, she is among the country’s brightest emerging stars.

Born in London, where she began her piano lessons at the age of five, Ms. Tanaka continued her studies in Japan and in the US at the Juilliard School. Her Master's and Doctoral degrees are from the University of Michigan where she was a full scholarship recipient. Her recent debut album “Misuzu Tanaka in Concert,” which was recorded live on the Concertant Classics label, features works by Janáček and J. S. Bach, two composers who have been a constant source of her musical inspiration. The 2017-2018 season brings two new releases: a second piano recital in which she further explores music of Janáček as well as music by Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff, and a debut album “Epilogues” with clarinetist Maksim Shtrykov, which focuses on four clarinet sonatas that are the last works of three leading composers: Johannes Brahms, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Francis Poulenc. Recent and upcoming performances include the RIT Performing Artist Series (NY), Placitas Artist Series (NM), Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago (IL), Chamber Music Society of Maryland, and Ross Ragland Classical Series (OR), to name a few.

This concert will take place on Saturday, November 11, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, Rehoboth, MA 02769. Admission is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $8 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a wine bar, and tickets are available at the door. First-come, first-seated. Cash and checks only. Handicapped-accessible bathroom facilities are now available. Information: 508-463-5384; http://www.rehobothantiquarian.org/arts-in-the-village/.
