'JPR Classics Live' presents Joel Fan on New Year's Eve

Bookmark and Share

Joel Fan is acclaimed as "soaring" (Los Angeles Times), "fantastic" (Washington Post), and possessing a "probing intellect and vivid imagination" (New York Times). Celebrated for his exuberant virtuosity, and a bold repertoire that embraces piano classics and inspired discoveries of contemporary and world music, Fan re-invents the piano recital by illuminating the rare and unexpected – creating, in the words of the Baltimore Sun's critic Tim Smith, "one of the most satisfying piano performances I've heard."

As a concerto soloist, Fan has performed over 40 different concertos with orchestras worldwide, including the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Odessa Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, the Boston Pops, and London Sinfonietta, with conductors such as David Zinman, Zubin Mehta, Alan Gilbert, Keith Lockhart, and David Robertson. According to the Boston Music-Intelligencer: "We've heard many of the great pianists… Fan belongs in the company of the best."

Fan is in town to perform with the Rogue Valley Symphony at their New Years Eve Gala: A Toast To Majkut.  He'll be joined by SOU's Christine Eggert in a performance of Poulenc's Concerto For Two Pianos. Tune in Tuesday, December 31st at Noon for a live performance from Joel Fan on JPR's Classics Siskiyou Music Hall.
