Acclaimed pianist to perform on campus Friday

Pianist Sally Pinkas will perform at Ripon College, Friday, Oct. 9, as part of the Chamber Music & Jazz at Ripon series. The recital will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Demmer Recital Hall, C.J. Rodman Center for the Arts.

Her program will include “Estampes,” by Claude Debussy; “Music from Romantic Manila,” s set of pieces by several Filipino composers; “Rondo in G Major,” by Ludwig van Beethoven; and “Fantasy in C Major Op. 15,” by Franz Schubert.

Pinkas, an Israeli-born pianist, has been a recitalist and chamber musician throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Russia and Nigeria. She has been praised for her radiant tone and driving energy. Pinkas is pianist-in-residence at the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College and professor of music in Dartmouth’s music department.

She has appeared with the Boston Pops, the Aspen Philharmonia, Jupiter Symphony and the Bulgarian Chamber Orchestra. Summer festival credits include Rockport, Marlboro, Tanglewood, Apple Hill and Aspen, as well as Kfar Blum (Israel), Officina Scotese (Italy) and Masters de Pontlevoy (France).

She is a member of the Hirsch-Pinkas Piano Duo, Ensemble Schumann and Trio Tremonti, and collaborates regularly with the Adaskin String Trio.

She has been described by Gramophone Magazine as “an artist who melds lucid textures with subtle expressive detailing, minus hints of bombast or mannerism.”
