Celebrating Beethoven: Tri-C Brings French Pianist Pierre Réach to Cleveland
Free recital takes place Feb. 9 at the Cleveland Museum of Art
Internationally acclaimed pianist Pierre Réach will pay tribute to Beethoven as part of the 2019-2020 Performing Arts Classical Piano Series presented by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
His free performance begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium, located at 11150 East Blvd. in University Circle. Seating is on a first-come basis the day of the recital.
Réach’s program comes as the classical music world celebrates the 250th anniversary of the year of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth. The famed German composer was born in 1770.
“Pierre’s interpretation of Beethoven’s piano sonatas reflects an intimate relationship with the music,” said Emanuela Friscioni, director of Tri-C’s Classical Piano Series. “He is a special talent, and his performance will create a lasting memory for all who attend.”
The French pianist brings five decades of applause to Cleveland. His music has filled performance halls around the world while earning Réach praise as an artist who plays with emotion and joy.
His numerous honors and accolades tell the story of a musical talent who continues to evolve and grow. In 2015, Réach was nominated for Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters recognition by the French Minister of Culture.
Réach’s performance is the third of four Classical Piano Series presentations in the College’s 2019-2020 Performing Arts season. The shows are designed to bring a world-class artistic experience to the Greater Cleveland community.
