Oxana Mikhailoff and Vassily Primakov- One Piano, Four Hands

Ms. Mikhailoff, the Artistic Director of Midland Music, and Mr. Primakov have known each other for over 30 years as they spent their formidable piano education together at the Moscow State Conservatory under the tutelage of the legendary Professor Vera Gornostaeva.

Ms. Mikhailoff has won many awards, including the Martha Argerich International Piano Competition. She had her Carnagie Hall debut in 1999 followed by an all-Chopin recital dedicated to the 150th anniversary of his death. Her playing has been described as “a mature and accomplished musician… Her playing has character, imagination, and is poetic. She has a strong personality and stage presence…”

Mr. Primakov has been hailed as a pianist of world class importance. Gramaphone wrote thet “Primakov’s empathy with Chopin could hardly be more complete,” and the American Record Guide stated, ” Since Gilels, how many pianists have the right touch? In Chopin, no one currently playing sounds as good as this! This is a great Chopin pianist.”

For the event, the BWC musical host, owner of the Recording Studio, The Loft in Bronxville, Al Hemberger,  lines up dynamic talent for the listening audience.

All share their musical passions and creations with us in a Musicians’ Listening Room format. The loggia is transformed into a venue where the audience can sit at tables with both old and new friends and socialize before/after/between the set of each performer. Given the famous BWC acoustically excellent sound, we just ask that people listen quietly during sets as the smallest sound can become disruptive.
