Live Lunchtime Recital

photo02l

Friday at 12:00 pm


She studied with Seymour Lipkin and Richard Goode, and was hired by James Conlon to play with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It’s clear from the company she keeps, Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute has the goods. Last month, she played at the Ravinia Festival with musicians from the Marlboro Festival, and is returning to Chicago this week for a recital at the PianoForte Foundation, the monthly Salon Series concerts.

Praised for her “commanding technique, refined temperament and persuasive insight” by The New York Times, Ms. Jokubaviciute will be focusing that musicianship upon a program ranging from J.S. Bach to Brahms to Janacek to contemporary composer Tristan Murail.

The Salon Series concerts are free and open to the public. WFMT’s live broadcast of the lunchtime concert begins at 12:00 noon on Friday.
