August 6: Pianist Conor Hanick

Pianist Conor Hanick performs works to be announced.

The wide-ranging musical abilities and diverse artistic interests of pianist Conor Hanick have led to acclaimed solo and chamber performances around the world and collaborations with music’s most accomplished instrumentalists, conductors, ensembles, and composers. In performances ranging from the early Baroque to the newly written, Hanick has collaborated with some of the world’s leading ensembles and conductors, including Pierre Boulez, David Robertson, and James Levine. He has be heard throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia—and in virtually every prominent arts venue in New York City—and been described as “brilliant,” “astounding,” (New York Times) “expert,” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and “sparkling,” (Strad) while reminding New York Times chief critic Anthony Tommasini of a “young Peter Serkin.” Although Hanick has been recognized as a “true champion of contemporary music” (NPR) through his deep commitment to the music of our time, Tommasini wrote that Hanick’s “technical refinement, color, crispness and wondrous variety of articulation…benefit works by any master.” A recent finalist for the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award, Hanick is a graduate of Northwestern University and the Juilliard School. He is a faculty artist at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, produces radio for New York Public Raido’s Q2 Music, and resides in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. He is a Yamaha Artist.
