Renowned Pianist Anton Nel to Perform June 2nd
On Monday, June 2nd, the UT School of Music will host a concert featuring internationally renowned pianist Anton Nel.
The concert will be one of the highlights of the Tennessee Music Teachers Association Conference, which is held at various locations within the state each year.
"Anton Nel is an acclaimed Beethoven interpreter, " says Fay Adams, Associate Professor of Piano and Coordinator of Keyboard Studies at the School of Music. "I have heard wonderful accolades about his playing."
Winner of the 1987 Naumburg International Piano Competition at Carnegie Hall, Nel has performed in major concert halls around the world: Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Queen Elizabeth and Wigmore Halls in London, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and more.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center located at 1741 Volunteer Blvd on campus.
An entrance fee of $10 will be charged at the door. For conference attendees, the concert fee is included in their conference costs.
The performance will feature Estampes by Debussy, Sonata No. 2 in G Minor, Op. 22 by Schumann, Variations on a Minuet by Duport in D Major, K. 57 by Mozart, and Sonata No. 21 in C Major, Op. 53 "Waldstein" by Beethoven.
"I hope Knoxvillians will take advantage of this opportunity," says Adams. "To hear Anton Nel play one of the School's fabulous Steinway pianos in our beautiful new Natalie L. Haslam Music Center is a special occasion for Knoxville classical music fans."
