Printer-friendly version

The Hodgson School of Music presents a special Guest Artist Recital tonight at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall featuring Julia Heinen, clarinet, and Dmitry Rachmanov, piano. Heinen is a Professor of Music at California State University, Northridge (near Los Angeles), who has performed hundreds of recitals throughout the United States and had the distinct pleasure of premiering several works written specifically for her. In February of 2003, she performed a recital including several new works at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall culminating in a compact disc recording including several of these pieces released in the Fall of 2007 by Centaur Records.

Rachmanov is an Associate Professor of Piano at California State University, Northridge, where he serves as Chair of Keyboard Studies. A strong proponent of the Russian repertoire, he gave the US premiere of Boris Pasternak's Piano Sonata, broadcast nationwide by the NPR, and his recital "The Art of the 19th Century Russian Character Piece" was noted by the New York Times for "considerable color and focus" he brought to each work.

This recital is free and open to the public.
