Emanuel Ax, piano

“His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays. Within minutes, we are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement.”
— Los Angeles Times

He was born to Polish parents—both Holocaust survivors—in 1949 in what is now Lviv, Ukraine. They moved to Winnipeg, Canada, when he was a young boy and eventually settled in Manhattan in an apartment across the street from Carnegie Hall.

In 1973, he debuted in his adopted hometown. “A young pianist with the hard-to-forget name of Emanuel Ax has one thing going for him before he plays a note,” The New York Times critic wrote. “But brand identification, as advertising men term it, helps in the long run only if the product delivers, and Mr. Ax’s recital at Alice Tully Hall on Monday night fortunately carried the stamp of quality.” That quality created one of the most lasting and impactful careers known by an American pianist.

20 Grammy nominations and eight wins. A touring career that has taken him to every major venue and orchestra in the world. An Avery Fisher Prize. A commitment to new music resulting in a long list of world premieres. Profound chamber partnerships, including five decades of collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma. Honorary doctorates from Skidmore College, New England Conservatory of Music, Yale University, and Columbia University. As the headline of a recent The New York Times profile put it: “For 50 Years, Emanuel Ax Has Made Music Sound Simply Right.”

He’s easily in the top rank of international piano stars, and he returns to the intimate Kimbell Art Museum with a program of Fantasies (Beethoven, Corigliano, Schumann) that he’ll play later that month at Carnegie Hall and the Chicago Symphony Center. Get your tickets right away.

KIMBELL ART MUSEUM RENZO PIANO PAVILION

Jean-Guihen Queyras, cello + Alexander Melnikov, piano

“Jean-Guihen Queyras and Alexander Melnikov convince with their mastery, their formal perfection and the contrast they establish between the two instruments… Sparkling or muffled, the shimmering of the keyboard responds to the Olympian tranquility of the cello, which progresses in these often-agitated pages like a ship accustomed to facing storms.”
— Diapason Magazine

Curiosity, diversity, and complete dedication to the music define the work of French-Canadian cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. His approach to music focuses on the principle that composer, performer, and audience must share the same inner motivation to achieve a moving, clear concert experience. This philosophy, alongside a flawless technique and a clear, engaging tone, has formed a foundation for a flourishing, decades-long career: regular performances with renowned orchestras, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, London Symphony Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester, and Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich; an impressive 27 recordings in as many years; and artist-in-residence appointments at Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Vredenburg Utrecht, De Bijloke Ghent, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg.

Pianist Alexander Melnikov’s “fine, highly musical phrasing, his brilliant touch and his desire to interact with the musicians as closely as possible” has led to an extraordinary career as a soloist with orchestras such as Philadelphia, NDR Elbphilharmonie, HR-Sinfonieorchester, Munich Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and BBC Philharmonic, as well as intensive chamber music collaborations. As a solo artist, his last season saw recitals at Berliner Philharmonie, Toppan Hall in Tokyo, Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw, and Munich’s Prinzregententheater. And his recording of Preludes and Fugues by Shostakovich was awarded the BBC Music Magazine Award, Choc de classica, and the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and was also named one of the “50 Greatest Recordings of All Time” by BBC Music Magazine.

Both of these world-renowned artists make their Cliburn Concerts debut next April.

Simone Porter, violin + Blake Pouliot, violin + Hsin-I Huang, piano

“Porter’s silken-toned virtuosity puts her right up there with the finest interpreters of her generation.”
— Chicago Classical Review

“[Pouliot is] one of those special talents that comes along once in a lifetime.”
— Toronto Star

Violinist Simone Porter has been recognized as an emerging artist of impassioned energy, interpretive integrity, and vibrant communication–whose “silken-toned virtuosity puts her right up there with the finest interpreters of her generation” (Chicago Classical Review). In the past few years, she has debuted with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Los Angeles Philharmonic; and with a number of renowned conductors, including Stéphane Denève, Gustavo Dudamel, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and Nicholas McGegan.

A tenacious young artist with a passion that enraptures his audience in every performance, violinist Blake Pouliot has performed with the orchestras of Philadelphia, Aspen, Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas, Montreal, Toronto, San Francisco, and Seattle, among many others. Blake’s debut album earned a 2019 Juno Award nomination for Best Classical Album. He has been NPR’s Performance Today Artist-in-Residence and won the Grand Prize at the 2016 Orchestre symphonique de Montréal Manulife Competition.

Pianist Hsin-I Huang has made guest appearances at the Hollywood Bowl, LA Philharmonic Chamber Music Series, Aspen Music Festival, Celebrity Series of Boston, Ravinia BGH Classics Series, Grand Teton Winter Music Festival, La Virée classique OSM, Fête de la Musique de Tremblant, and on NPR’s Performance Today.

Haochen Zhang, piano

“Haochen Zhang has something more: a rare gift for painting scenes in music, creating visions and telling stories. His technique is likely second to none, but his true distinction is his ability to use it in communicating  his extra-musical ideas to listeners.”
— Boston Musical Intelligencer

In the 15 years since he won Cliburn gold at the age of 19, Haochen Zhang has captivated audiences in the United States, Europe, and Asia with a unique combination of deep musical sensitivity, fearless imagination, and spectacular virtuosity. He’s already appeared with many of the world’s leading festivals and orchestras including the BBC Proms with Long Yu and the China Philharmonic; the Munich Philharmonic with Lorin Maazel in a sold-out tour in Munich and China; the Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin; the Sydney Symphony and David Robertson in a China tour; and the NDR Hamburg and Thomas Hengelbrock in a tour of Tokyo, Beijing, and Shanghai.

In recent seasons, he debuted with the New York Philharmonic and Lucerne Festival Orchestra; performed with the Filarmonica della Scala, NHK Symphony Orchestra, and Staatskapelle Berlin; toured Asia with The Philadelphia Orchestra and the United States with the Atlanta Symphony; made extensive recital and concerto tours in Asia with performances in China, Hong Kong, and Japan; and gave a concerto performance at Carnegie Hall with the NCPA Orchestra, which was followed by his recital debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall.

And he’s built an already impressive discography, including last year’s release of the Liszt Transcendental Etudes, which Gramophone calls “a performance of unusual focus” that “no lover of Liszt, or of 19th-century piano repertoire more generally, can afford to miss.”

Help us welcome Haochen home.

Sir Stephen Hough, piano

“It’s hard not to be a little awestruck by the breadth of Stephen Hough’s passions, to say nothing of his talents. [He] is simply one of the most interesting musicians around.”
— The Boston Globe

One of the more distinctive artists of his generation, Sir Stephen Hough combines a distinguished career as a pianist with those of a composer and writer. Named by The Economist as one of 20 Living Polymaths, he was the first classical performer to be awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2014, and was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2022.

He has performed with the world’s major orchestras and given recitals at the most prestigious concert halls—including 25 concerto appearances at the BBC Proms; his 50 albums hold four Grammy® nominations and eight Gramophone magazine awards; and he holds positions at Cambridge University, the Royal Northern College in Manchester, and The Juilliard School. Sir Stephen is a prolific composer who has written works for orchestra, choir, chamber ensemble, organ, harpsichord, and solo piano, and has been commissioned by the likes of Wigmore Hall, the Louvre, the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quartet, and the Cliburn—for the 2022 Competition, where he also served on the jury. A noted writer, he’s published four books and contributed articles for The New York TimesThe GuardianThe TimesGramophone, and BBC Music Magazine.

This beloved member of the Cliburn Family returns this January to again perform in the gorgeous Kimbell Art Museum—as well as to make his first appearance with Cliburn Sessions.

Gabriel Kahane, piano/singer/composer + Caroline Shaw, violin/singer/composer

It’s quite possibly the coolest collaboration imaginable in classical music.

Gabriel Kahane is a musician and storyteller whose work increasingly exists at the intersection of art and social practice. Hailed as “one of the finest songwriters of the day” by The New Yorker, he is known to haunt basement rock clubs and august concert halls alike, and has collaborated with the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Thile, and Paul Simon. He has released five albums as a singer-songwriter and, as a composer, has been commissioned by many of America’s leading arts institutions—including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, LA Philharmonic, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and Public Theater.

Caroline Shaw is a musician who moves among roles, genres, and mediums, trying to imagine a world of sound that has never been heard before but has always existed. She is the recipient of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Music, several Grammy® awards, an honorary doctorate from Yale, and a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship. She’s written over 100 works in the last decade (for Anne Sofie von Otter, Yo-Yo Ma, Renée Fleming, Dawn Upshaw, LA Philharmonic, and many, many more) and has contributed music to films and tv series including The HumansBombshellYellowjacketsMaidDark, Beyoncé’s HomecomingTár, and Dolly Parton’s America.

Now these two artists combine their ingenious, enlightening minds for a new project currently in the works, to include a collaborative piece around Jorge Luis Borges’ 1939 short story, “The Library of Babel.”

Joseph Parrish, bass-baritone

“Parrish is one of this new, exciting generation of singers who ignore the distinction between pop and classical. He is a connoisseur of song who can spin vocal gold… with singular smoothness and style.”
— Seen and Heard International

“Baltimore native bass-baritone Joseph Parrish is the epitome of the modern musician, critically acclaimed for his rich, warm voice and impeccable technique” (WETA). Hailed for his versatility, Joseph is equally adept on the operatic, concert, and recital stage–and across classical, gospel, pop, and American songbook. The 26-year-old has been called “fast-rising” by The Washington Post, with a concert career that has already included an artist apprenticeship at the Santa Fe Opera; performances at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Madison Square Garden, and Kennedy Center; on New York’s famed Death of Classical crypt series; and with Festival Napa Valley and City Lyric Opera, among others.

Passionate about giving back to the various communities that have nurtured him, Joseph was an inaugural cohort member of the Denyce Graves Foundation’s flagship Shared Voices, a program designed to address diversity, equity, and inclusion through collaboration between Historically Black Colleges and Universities, top conservatories, and schools of music in the United States.

This rising star makes his Cliburn Concerts debut in October.

Joyce Yang, piano

“Her attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance and velocity.”
— The Washington Post

She first came to international attention in 2005 when, at 19, she took home the Cliburn silver medal, along with special prizes for best chamber music and new work. Seoul-born Joyce Yang has since made more than 1,000 concert appearances in the world’s prestigious venues and with the New York, Los Angeles, and BBC Philharmonics, the Deutsches-Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, and the Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Sydney, and New Zealand Symphony Orchestras. She’s also a Grammy®-nominated recording artist praised for her “imaginative programming” and “beautifully atmospheric playing” (Gramophone).

Recent years have included an exploration of “art-inspires-art;” she’s curated and performed concerts that highlight the relationship between music and dance, including a major collaboration with the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. She’s currently artist-in-residence for Grant Park Music Festival and is touring to more than 30 cities this season.

And this fall, the extraordinary, innovative, and elegant Joyce Yang returns to Fort Worth to open our season with Tchaikovsky Seasons, Rachmaninov preludes, and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Seokyoung Hong Performance + Q&A at the Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra

Concert and conversation with 2023 Cliburn Junior winner Seokyoung Hong for a short performance and Q&A at the Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra. Topics are centered around life as a music student and participation in conservatories. This talk is geared toward high school music students.

This event is free to attend, but space is limited. RSVP required. This concert is presented in partnership with Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra.

 


ABOUT SEOKYOUNG HONG, 2023 Cliburn Junior Winner

Winner of both the first prize and audience awards at the 2023 Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival, Seokyoung Hong impressed with playing “full of fire, intensity and musical precision” (Classic FM). Born in Seoul, he studied for two years at the Yewon School before moving to Boston in 2022 to work with HaeSun Paik at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School while also attending the Walnut Hill School for the Arts. He’s found himself inspired by his new environment: “Nature inspires me in various ways—its huge size, marvelous detail, the beauty of nature itself, and a lot more. For instance, the enormous entities like the ocean and the universe motivate me but also make me feel that I am only a small human.” He also finds inspiration and motivation from the two most recent winners of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, South Korea’s Yekwon Sunwoo and Yunchan Lim.

Seokyoung’s interest in composing leads him to constantly study, he says, but he also enjoys riding his bike, playing chess, and participating in the table tennis club at school. Before his Cliburn appearance, Seokyoung had several first or second-place finishes at international competitions in Korea, Switzerland, and the United States.

Four Junior artists will play concerto movements with Final Round conductor Valentina Peleggi and a locally based ensemble.


About Valentina Peleggi

Valentina Peleggi has been music director of the Richmond Symphony since the 2020–2021 season and has already revitalized the orchestra’s artistic output. While focusing on developing the orchestra’s own sound, she has also launched new concert formats, joined national co-commission partnerships, started a three-year composer-in-residence program, launched conducting masterclasses in collaboration with the local universities, and championed neglected composers from diverse backgrounds. Highlights of the 2022–2023 season include a ground-breaking augmented reality project, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony, and a special concert with soloist Yo-Yo Ma.

This season Ms. Peleggi debuts with the New World Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, and Rochester Philharmonic; at the Grant Park Festival in Chicago; and in Europe with the Residentie Orkest, Liege Philharmonic, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Nuremburg Symphony, and the orchestra of Opera North, also conducting the opening concert of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Masterclass with Janina Fialkowska

Free to attend. No ticket required.

Four Junior artists will play for Janina Fialkowska, renowned pianist and Cliburn Junior jury chairman.


About Janina Fialkowska
Jury Chariman

For almost 50 years, pianist Janina Fialkowska has enchanted audiences and critics around the world. She has been praised for her musical integrity, her refreshing natural approach, and her unique piano sound, thus becoming “one of the Grandes Dames of piano playing” (Frankfurter Allgemeine).

Born in Canada, she began her piano studies with her mother at age 4, continuing on in her native Montréal with Yvonne Hubert. In Paris she studied with Yvonne Lefébure and in New York at The Juilliard School with Sascha Gorodnitzki, experiencing the best of both French and Russian piano traditions. Her career was launched in 1974, when the legendary Arthur Rubinstein became her mentor after her prize-winning performance at his inaugural Master Piano Competition, calling her a “born Chopin interpreter” and laying the foundation for her lifelong identification with this composer.

Since then she has performed with the foremost orchestras worldwide under the baton of such conductors as Zubin Mehta, Bernard Haitink, Lorin Maazel, Sir Georg Solti, Sir Roger Norrington, and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. She has won special recognition for a series of important premieres, notably Liszt’s newly discovered Third Piano Concerto with the Chicago Symphony and several contemporary piano concertos. Ms. Fialkowska’s discography includes many award-winning discs, with major recognition including BBC Music Magazine’s 2013 “Instrumental CD of the Year” award and the Canadian JUNO Award in 2018.

Her native Canada has bestowed upon her their highest honors: Officer of the Order of Canada and the Governor General’s 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award in Classical Music (Canada’s equivalent to the Kennedy Center Honors), as well as three honorary doctorates. She passes on her wide musical experience in masterclasses and at her annual International Piano Academy in Bavaria, where she now resides, and makes frequent appearances as a juror of the world’s most prestigious piano competitions. In November, Novum Publishing (London) released her autobiography, A Note in Time.

Ms. Fialkowska previously served on the Screening Jury for the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.

ANDERSON & ROE PIANO DUO

This concert was previously scheduled for May 10 at The Post at River East. All tickets purchased for the previously scheduled venue will be honored, and no action is required. 


Celebrating 10 Years of Cliburn Sessions!

This concert celebrates 10 years of Cliburn Sessions! Anderson & Roe performed at the very first Cliburn Sessions concert a decade ago, launching an innovative concert series that brought a classically alternative music scene to Fort Worth. The decade that followed has seen magic: classical music’s top international stars playing Fort Worth’s best clubs, venturing outside of the normal concert environment, and expanding and connecting with audiences in a new, meaningful way. Join us as we celebrate 10 years of great music at Fort Brewery with the artists who helped launch this series.


“There is an overriding joy in their music-making. Couple that with incredible technical abilities, ensemble second to none, and… a true sense of theatrical entertainment, and you have a positive look at the future of classical music performance.” 
— American Record Guide

Known for their adrenalized performances, original compositions, and notorious music videos, Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe are revolutionizing the piano duo experience. Described as “the most dynamic duo of this generation” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “rock stars of the classical music world” (Miami Herald), and “the very model of complete 21st-century musicians” (The Washington Post), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo just celebrated 20 years of doing their part to make classical music a relevant and powerful force around the world. Their five critically acclaimed albums have spent dozens of weeks at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts, while their Emmy-nominated, self-produced music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube and at international film festivals. They’ve toured extensively worldwide as recitalists and orchestral soloists; appeared on NPR, MTV, PBS, and the BBC; presented at numerous international leader symposiums; and served as hosts of From the Top.

And they’re absolute Cliburn Family favorites, as concert artists and as on-air webcast hosts for three Cliburn competitions. They’ll be back here for two energetic, unforgettable nights this season.

GABRIELA MONTERO, piano

“Montero’s playing has everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power in climactic moments, soulful lyricism in the ruminative passages and, best of all, unsentimental expressivity.” — The New York Times

When awarding her the 2023 Performance Today Classical Woman of the Year, American Public Media noted that Gabriela Montero is “a soulful artist at the piano, bringing out the beauty and humanity in a wide range of music, and a fervent composer of music that speaks to the joy and tumult of our times.”

Performances have taken her to many of the world’s most prestigious halls and orchestras. An award-winning recording artist and composer, she has combined the two, to outstanding results: her 2015 release, which includes her own Ex Patria and Improvisations, won the Latin Grammy® for Best Classical Album. And she is a strong and eloquent champion for the people of her native Venezuela, often using the power of her gifts of composition and improvisation as a tool of creative dissent; her advocacy has earned recognition from the Human Rights Foundation, Beethoven Academy, and Amnesty International.

Now she returns to Cliburn Concerts for her first appearance in almost 15 years. And she’ll be a closer part of the Cliburn Family very soon, as she joins the jury for the 2025 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and has been commissioned to write an original work to be performed by all 30 competitors in the Preliminary Round!

When “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists” (Gramophone) performs with a seminal pianist who “ranks among the small handful of performers in every generation whose abilities defy the imagination” (Toronto Star), the result is nothing short of magic.

Canadian cellist Johannes Moser won silver at the 2002 International Tchaikovsky Competition and has since had a phenomenal touring career, from soloing with the New York, Los Angeles, and BBC Philharmonics, as well as the orchestras of Chicago, London, Tokyo NHK, and Bayerischen Rundfunks, to chamber appearances with the likes of Emanuel Ax, Joshua Bell, Midori, and Menahem Pressler. He’s also a prolific recording artist and a champion of new music who is heavily involved in commissioning.

Which makes this match-up all the better: Marc-André Hamelin is not only a pianist known worldwide for his unrivaled blend of consummate musicianship and brilliant technique who has performed wide-ranging repertoire in the world’s great halls, he is a well-known composer with more than 30 pieces to his name, including the commissioned work for the 2017 Cliburn Competition (where he was also a juror). His discography spans more than 70 recordings which have earned him 11 Grammy® nominations, seven Juno Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the German Record Critics’ Association.

This March, Johannes makes his Cliburn Concerts debut alongside Marc-André, a stalwart member of the Cliburn Family, with works by Debussy and Franck, as well as Nadia Boulanger and Hamelin himself.

Maria & Stanislav Ioudenitch, violin & piano

“Growing up in a house where the walls danced from the sounds of two pianists practicing, fate has it that I am a violinist.” When she was 3 years old, Maria Ioudenitch’s pianist parents, Stanislav and Tatiana, handed her a tiny violin, and her love for music began.

The following year, she came to Fort Worth to witness her father’s dedication to his instrument come to fruition when Stanislav Ioudenitch took home gold in the 2001 Cliburn Competition. And she certainly has followed in his footsteps, recently winning several international violin competitions and securing a recording contract with Warner Classics. Keeping it all in the Cliburn Family, her first release with the label in March 2023, Songbird, was a collaboration with Kenny Broberg, 2017 Cliburn silver medalist and longtime student of Stanislav—one of the most sought-after teachers today, as well as an in-demand touring artist.

Don’t miss this truly family affair, as father and daughter unite with an all-French program of Ravel, Boulanger, Poulenc, and Franck at the Kimbell, as well as an intimate, casual concert at The Post.

Jake Heggie, composer & piano

“Arguably the world’s most popular 21st-century opera and art song composer” – The Wall Street Journal

Composer Jake Heggie is best known for the operas Dead Man Walking, Moby-Dick, It’s a Wonderful Life, Three Decembers, Two Remain, and If I Were You.  His 10th full-length opera, Intelligence, made its debut with the Houston Grand Opera this Fall, and he is currently at work on new works for violinist Joshua Bell, New Century Chamber Orchestra, the Miró Quartet, and Music of Remembrance. The operas and his nearly 300 art songs have been performed extensively on five continents, championed by some of the world’s most beloved artists. With a libretto by the late Terrence McNally, Dead Man Walking has become “the most celebrated American opera of the 21st century” (Chicago Tribune). It has received nearly 80 international productions since its San Francisco Opera premiere in 2000.

And this season, one of the most iconic living American composers makes his first Cliburn Concerts appearance in 15 years, in a dynamic evening at the Kimbell, featuring performances of his works by vocalists of the Fort Worth Opera (as well as the composer himself) and an insightful conversation with the Cliburn’s Buddy Bray.

Homecoming Concert + Party

A showcase celebration of the Cliburn’s last decade

When Jacques Marquis was named president and CEO of the Cliburn ten years ago, he and his team inherited a treasure that had been passionately built by a host of dedicated leaders in the five decades prior.

Working closely with the energetic staff, the gregarious Quebecer continued the Cliburn’s longtime trajectory of growth, developing innovative ways to expand the Cliburn’s brand, reach, and cultural leadership around the world and right here at home.

This October, join us on the gorgeous grounds of TX Whiskey Ranch for a uniquely Cliburn experience—a one-night, ten-plus-artist concert event, capped with a jubilant afterparty featuring delicious Texas bites and TX Whiskey drinks.

Patrons must be 21 years or older to attend this event. Food and drink included with ticket purchase. Tickets are lawn seating general admission. Bring a lawn chair and picnic blanket and enjoy a beautiful night of music outdoors with a stunning view of downtown Fort Worth.

Anna Geniushene, piano

“Geniushene played beautifully with an exquisite touch and almost an infinite tonal palette.”
La Scena

Anna Geniushene’s fresh, layered, and powerful interpretations defined her participation at the 2022 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition—and won her the coveted silver medal and the adoration of fans around the globe. And the critics couldn’t get enough: “powerhouse sound, forceful musical personality, and sheer virtuosity…had this critic on the edge of his seat” (Musical America); “a fresh version…that had this listener hanging on every bar” (La Scena); “I couldn’t help but equate Anna Geniushene’s seasoned pianism to [Van] Cliburn at his best” (Gramophone).

Her inaugural season as a Cliburn winner included recital appearances at the Grand Teton Music Festival, Festival International de la Roque d’Anthéron, and across the United States; a tour of Japan with pianist Andrey Gugnin; piano duo concerts with Wu Han and Dmytro Choni at Wolf Trap and La Musica Festival; and engagements with the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra and Taipei Symphony Orchestra.

She now returns to Fort Worth for her official Cliburn Concerts debut in two intimate nights at the Kimbell.

About Clayton Stephenson

Growing up in New York City, Clayton Stephenson found musical inspiration in community programs. As he describes it, the “3rd Street Music School jump-started my music education; the Young People’s Choir taught me phrasing and voicing; the Juilliard Outreach Music Advancement Program introduced me to formal and rigorous piano training, which enabled me to get into Juilliard Pre-College; the Morningside Music Bridge validated my talent and elevated my self-confidence; the Boy’s Club of New York exposed me to jazz; and the Lang Lang Foundation brought me to stages worldwide and transformed me from a piano student to a young artist.”

Clayton now studies in the Harvard-NEC Dual Degree Program, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in economics at Harvard and a master’s degree in piano performance at the New England Conservatory under Wha Kyung Byun. And his accolades along the way have been bountiful: his appearance at the 2022 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition was lauded for his “extraordinary narrative and poetic gifts” and performances that were “fresh, incisive and characterfully alive” (Gramophone), earning him a spot among the finalists. He has also been named a 2022 Gilmore Young Artist; 2017 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts; Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist; Gheens Young Artist; and Young Scholar of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. He also took home a jury discretionary award at the 2015 Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival.

Recent and upcoming highlights of Clayton’s burgeoning career include appearances at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Kissinger Sommer Festival, BeethovenFest Bonn, Ravinia Festival, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and with the Calgary Philharmonic, Chicago Sinfonietta, Colour of Music Festival, Fort Worth, Louisville, and North Carolina Symphony Orchestras. On the 69th U.N. Day, Clayton played with the International Youth Orchestra at the United Nations General Assembly Hall, and he appeared in the “GRAMMY® Salute to Classical Music” Concert at Carnegie’s Stern Auditorium.
