Pianoforte Salon Series Live

Matthew Hagle, pianist

Friday, February 6 at 12:00 pm

WFMT’s monthly concert series presents pianist Matthew Hagle, performing Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 27 #1, Debussy’s “Images, Book 2,” Chopin’s “Barcarolle,” and Tarantella from “Venezia e Napoli” by Liszt.

From Cedille Records: “Hagle’s performances are often [singled out] for their musical understanding, imaginative programming, and beauty of sound. The New York Times has described him as ‘a sensitive pianist,’ Clavier Magazine has praised the ‘rare clarity and sweetness’ of his playing, and the Springfield (MA) Republican remarked he ‘played with unaffected brilliance and profound understanding.’

Hagle lives in the Chicago area, where he has performed at local venues including the Ravinia Festival’s Martin Theatre, Symphony Center, and the Chicago Cultural Center.”

This broadcast, hosted by Dave Schwan, is live from PianoForte Studio in downtown Chicago.
