The Gorenman Beethoven Project

What happens when you put Yuliya Gorenman in front of a piano and all thirty-two Beethoven sonatas? Something close to how my high-school chemistry teach described the fusion of molecules – MAGIC!

As a music performance major at AU I have the extreme pleasure of getting to know Yuliya. She is a truly incredible musician and pianist and even more incredible woman. Technically I don’t think anyone knows the piano better than Yuliya, and her interpretations of compositions brings tears to her audience’s eyes – Yuliya puts everything into the music she plays. And when off the piano she puts everything into life. As anyone hanging around Katzen Arts Center – people smile when they see Yuliya. Her stories about cooking and fishing and kids will brighten anyone’s day.

This Saturday Gorenman will preform Sonatas No. 27, 28 and 29 at the Abramson Family Recital Hall in Katzen Arts Center. If you haven’t gotten tickets yet, you’ll want to act quickly, this is a performance you don’t want to miss! At the last Beethoven recital I remember at least 3 encores, complete with standing ovations.

If you want to listen to Gorenman right now check out CD 4941, CD 4942, CD 4943 and CD 4944 at the American University Music Library.
