Renowned pianist to perform recital

Baylor Artist-in-Residence, Krassimira Jordan, will perform a faculty recital at 7 p.m. Monday in Roxy Grove Hall.

Jordan will open the program with three of Franz Liszt’s piano transcriptions of Franz Schubert songs, including “Du bist di Ruh,” “Auf dem Wasser zu Singen” and “Gretchen am Spinnrade.” Another Liszt transcription will follow.

Following intermission, Jordan will return with seven piano pieces by Claude Debussy.

Jordan has established an international reputation as a concert pianist and recording artist, and was born in Varna, Bulgaria, to Russian and Bulgarian parents.

She has received a series of prestigious international prizes including the International Piano Competitions “Alfredo Casella” and “Alessandro Casagrande,” as well as the Mozart “Clara Haskil” Prize.

A professor of piano for 10 years at the world-renowned Vienna Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Jordan made her Carnegie Hall debut in 1989.

Her compact disc releases, “Slavic Masterworks for Piano” and “The Legacy of Pantcho Vladigerov,” are available through the Albany Records label.

The recital is free of charge and open to the public. For more information contact the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
