Sarofim School of Fine Arts’ Music Department proudly welcomes pianist Sophia Gilmson to the Caldwell-Carvey Foyer. Originally from Russia, Ms. Gilmson is a cum laude graduate from the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Conservatory, whose concerts in Russia, Italy, and the United States have been received with glowing critical acclaim. Her talent has earned her multiple awards, including First Prize in the Young Artists’ Competition in New York City, a winning place in the Piano International Recording Competition, and a performance at Carnegie Hall. At Southwestern University, Ms. Gilmson will present a fascinating lecture-recital on the keyboard music of J.S. Bach and Dmitri Shostakovich, and how the two composers’ works are related.
This event is free and open to the public.
