Sara Davis Buechner Concert Nov / NY - 07/28/09 11:02 AM

Sara Davis Buechner, the celebrated American pianist, will mark the 25th anniversary of her New York debut with an exciting recital at Merkin Concert Hall on November 11, 2009, at 8:00 p.m. The program features music of Bach-Busoni, Mozart and Martinu, as well as rare works of Miklós Rózsa, Japanese composer Kouji Taku, and delightful foxtrot arrangements by Ms. Buechner herself.

Twenty-five years ago the New York Times hailed Ms. Buechner as a musician of “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess.” Since that time she has soloed with every major orchestra in North America in an astonishing repertoire of over 100 different Piano Concertos; recorded a number of extraordinary CDs; performed innovative original programs incorporating dance and film; commissioned and premiered important new music; and acquired a reputation as one of America’s most formidable and accomplished keyboard artists. Her personal story is no less compelling, a journey of integrity and courage that has been chronicled by major international press such as Paris Match and Macleans. In Japan she is a much-heralded honorary member of the Osaka Hanshin Tigers baseball team.

Sara is a fabulous pianist and a professor of music at our UBC university here in Vancouver, B.C. Canada

I corresponded with her when she originally moved here.

Sara has become a local/national treasure since, her performances are always something to really look forward to.

Go Sarah, go!!
