Dear Music Lovers,
Another Piatigorsky concert will be held, Saturday, January 28th, 6:30pm at the First Baptist Church in Junction. The artist is Richard Dowling, acclaimed pianist, who appears regularly across America in solo recitals, at chamber music and jazz/ragtime festivals, and as a guest soloist with orchestras. Career highlights include a sold-out New York orchestral debut at Lincoln Center, solo recitals at Carnegie Hall, and a special award from the National Federation of Music Clubs recognizing his outstanding performances of American music. Works of Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Gershwin, Gottschalk, and American ragtime figure prominently in his repertoire. Mr. Dowling has received performance reviews that praise him as “a master of creating beautiful sounds with impeccable control of colors and textures” and as “a musician with something to say, the skill to say it and the magnetic power to make you want to listen” and for giving “a superb recital that left the audience craving for more at the end.” He is also a versatile recording artist with over a dozen CDs of classical, chamber, ragtime, jazz, and popular music.
As a Piatigorsky artist, this will be the 3rd time Mr. Dowling has performed for a Junction audiences. A native Texan, Dowling holds advanced degrees in music from Yale and the University of Texas, including a doctorate.
I encourage you to attend and to help me spread the word about this wonderful musical opportunity.
