The Armenian-American pianist, Kariné Poghosyan, will perform a unique solo piano recital on Thursday, October 19 at 7:30pm at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall. The recital is presented by the Institute of International Social Development Inc., and the United Nations Women’s Guild.
Inspired by the idea of “transformation,” Ms. Poghosyan’s recital is entirely comprised of solo piano works that were originally written entirely for instrumentation – from a full symphony to a solo violin showpiece.
The program will begin with Franz Liszt’s masterful and virtuosic transcription of the beloved Symphony No. 5 by Beethoven. In the second half of the program, Ms. Poghosyan will perform Brahms’s powerhouse Variations based on the theme by Paganini. The program will conclude with magnificently transformed ballet music dynamically brought to life on solo piano.
The first work will be the Adagio from Aram Khachaturian’s ballet, Spartacus, arranged by Matthew Cameron. The second ballet work and the grand finale of the program will be Guido Agosti’s arrangement of the Firebird by Igor Stravinsky.
This inspiring and invigorating program, presented by a “powerhouse pianist” such as Kariné Poghosyan, is sure to have a transformative effect on the listeners.
It will have yet another transformative factor as a portion of the proceeds will be donated to girls education and women’s empowerment programs around the world, provided by the Institute of International Social Development, Inc. and the United Nations Women’s Guild.
