JEWETT — As summer begins to slowly wind down, the award-winning summer chamber music series at Grazhda Hall continues to highlight performers at the height of their talents, many of whom are attracted by the acoustically resonant hall and sense of creative community fostered by Artistic Director Volodymyr Vynnytsky. The concert on Saturday, Aug 17 at 8pm features Serhiy Salov, recognized internationally as an outstanding pianist, one whose playing is both energetic and imbued with sensitivity. Salov deploys his remarkable technique, exacting rigor and virtuosity in service of uncovering the most poetic expression of the music possible; for Saturday’s concert he will bring his gifts to bear on the works of a varied array of composers including Chopin, Schumann, Lysenko, and Shamo. After initially learning music in Ukraine, Salov pursued his studies in London, obtaining a Master’s degree from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama, followed by a Doctor of Music degree from the Université de Montréal. His gifts extend far beyond the mastery of piano technique: the disciplines of improvisation, musicology, and the study of languages complement his training. A superlative concert performer, Serhiy Salov has collaborated with renowned conductors and numerous orchestras around the world and is regularly featured at the foremost international music festivals; in 2004, he won the prestigious Montreal International Music Competition. A chance to hear a world-class performer in such an intimate setting is sure to be among cultural highlights of the summer, for long-time fans of the series and newcomers alike. 8 p.m. at Grazhda Concert Hall, Rt. 23A.
