Great artists give free concerts at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.

"By any measure, he plays the piano as well as it can be played." - New York Times

A member of the Boston Chamber Music Society, Randall Hodgkinson has given solo performances with the orchestras of Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, and New York. During this recital, Hodgkinson will not only be playing the piano, but will introduce a new piece, as well as it can be played. The Gramercy Piano Trio, featuring Hodgkinson on piano, violinist Sharan Leventhal, and cellist Jonathan Miller, will be premiering the Gunther Schuller Piano Trio. Hodgkinson completed his Bachelor of Music degree with honors at New England Conservatory in 1976, attending NEC during the era in which Gunther Schuller served as President, and was also soloist under Schuller while on a fellowship to Tanglewood. Hodgkinson is thrilled to be debuting this piece composed by a visionary who has composed over 180 works, ranging from orchestral and solo works to jazz.

Hodgkinson will also be performing Bach’s beloved Goldberg Variations, a masterpiece that is not approached lightly and only when the performer has a poignant interpretation to share.

Also on the program are piano pieces by Fauré, which are sure to be emblematic of Fauré’s ability to connect Romanticism with a more modern sound, diverging from the use of standard harmonies.

Date: January 14, 2013 - 8:00:PM Price: Free Location: NEC’s Jordan Hall

    I was wondering if people had a preference to where to sit in the theater? Some people mentioned that it is easier to sit as a group in the balcony. Otherwise we meet in the lobby at 7:30pm and then walk in as group to sit. If the theater is somewhat full, we will be scattered. This is why it is so important to meet on time, so you can connect with members of the group and sit together.
