Pianist Andreas Klein to perform at UT Martin on Sept. 29

Andreas Klein, an internationally known pianist, will perform a solo recital at 3 p.m., Sept. 29, in the University of Tennessee at Martin’s Blankenship Recital Hall, located inside the Fine Arts Building on the main campus. The recital is open to the public, and there is no charge to attend.

The program, “Bach, Beethoven and Beyond,” will include Bach’s Partita No. 2; Beethoven’s Sonata, op. 110; Chopin’s Ballade in G minor; and Prokofieff’s Sonata No. 2. Following Klein’s rise to fame in Germany, he attended the Julliard School in New York and studied with Claudio Arrau, a Chilean pianist known for his interpretations of composers spanning the baroque to 20th-century periods.

He has since performed in many of the leading houses of Europe and the United States, including Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. His tours have taken him throughout North America, South America and Europe.

Klein’s UT Martin appearance is sponsored by Dr. Elaine Harriss, professor of piano; UT Martin’s piano emphasis; and the Martin Area Music Teachers Association in memory of former member and Union City piano teacher Kathleen Parker.
