Sergei Babayan, Prize Winning Classical Pianist, All Rachmaninoff Recital
Sweeney Concert Hall at Smith College (144 Green Street, Northampton MA)
The meditative focus and rare stillness of Armenian-American pianist Sergei Babayan’s keyboard artistry prompted the Hamburger Abendblatt to liken him to “one of those Japanese calligraphers who contemplate the white page before them in silence until, at the exact right moment, their brush makes its instinctive, perfect sweep across the paper”. Babayan himself has observed that making music should be open to surprises and spontaneous insights, allowing unexpected emotions to emerge and subtle shadings to evolve naturally.
Sergei Babayan is a Deutsche Grammophon exclusive artist; his latest release 'Rachmaninoff' (DG 2020) was hailed by the international press as a groundbreaking recording and received numerous awards including BBC Recording of the Month and CHOC Classical.
