Tucson, Arizona – Pima Community College Music presents Anton Faynberg in a piano recital. The program includes “Five Preludes” by Alexander Scriabin, “French Suite No. 3” by J.S. Bach, and “Sonata No. 3” by Sergei Prokofiev. The second half of the program features “Klavierstücke” by Johannes Brahms, “Intermezzo in Memory of Brahms” by Sergei Slonimsky, “Sonata No. 2” by Sergei Prokofiev, and “Freeform Improvisation” by Anton Faynberg.
Faynberg is recognized for his originality and sensitivity as a truly noteworthy pianist. Thoughtful and lyrical with a strong sense of modernity, he specializes in the performance of 20th century Russian music and has a keen appreciation for Baroque music. In addition, he is exploring an improvisatory approach to the piano, with the aim of liberating the standard classical concert from its formulaic connotations and introducing a more interactive and integrated model.
Born in Russia, Faynberg immigrated to the United States in 1994 and continued to study and perform music. While studying with Margarita Gurevich and Tatyana Yampolsky in Boston, he won numerous piano awards including the Massachusetts Music Teachers Association Annual Piano Competition, the Ibla Grand Prize International Competition in Sicily, and the Russian-American Music Association International Competition with a performance at Carnegie’s Weill Hall in New York City. Faynberg attended the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and studied with Sedmara Zakarian-Rutstein and Sanford Margolis. He performed widely in the Kulas and Warner Recital Halls. In Boston, Faynberg had five major solo recitals, including a program of tangos for two pianos by Astor Piazzolla in 2009.
The Anton Faynberg Piano Recital is open to the public. Tickets are available at the Center for the Arts box office, located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson, (just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary’s Road which turns into Anklam Road). Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance.
