Nathan Carterette

Please come to hear Nathan Carterette present an all-Chopin program at the Center on Friday, Feb. 25th at 7:00 PM. The concert will feature the Sonata no.2 “Funeral March,” the Preludes, op.28 and Liszt transcriptions of Chopin’s Polish songs, op.72.

The winner of both the Steinway Society of Massachussetts and the Bartók-Kabalevsky-Prokofiev competitions, Nathan Carterette has been praised as “very compelling in his power and presence” (International Composer). He has been presented in Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, Yamaha Piano Salon in New York City, Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, among many others. He graduated from the Yale University School of Music, and a chance encounter with Welsh composer-pianist Dafydd Llylwelyn led to intensive study in Munich, where he premiered Llywelyn’s visionary piano cycle, “TimeQuake.” He is a frequent guest artist on recital series at Kent State University in Ohio, Radford University in Virginia and the Berklee School of Music in Boston.

Concert at the Polish American Cultural Center, 6501 Lansing Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44105, Friday, Feb. 25th at 7 PM. Free will offering. Reception, with coffee, tea, desserts, and cash bar.
