427 Chestnut Street

Winner of the 2012 Richard Tucker Career Grant, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano is recognized for her naturally lustrous sound and fresh, appealing stage presence. Her voice is a voluminous one that’s characterized by “remarkable agility in her higher range and a molten contralto lower down, gliding between these registers with seeming ease” (Washington Post). Widely fêted for her work at the Met—particularly in Robert LePage’s Ring cycle—Cano is joined by a trio of MET luminaries—orchestra principals Nathan Hughes and Rafael Figueroa, and pianist Ken Noda, musical assistant to James Levine—for an intimate recital of vocal and instrumental chamber music.

Since winning the silver medal at the Warsaw Chopin competition 14 years ago, Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter has established a reputation as one of the pre-eminent interpreters of Chopin. Her 2014 Preludes disc made Gramophone’s list of 10 “Must Have” Chopin recordings, and she performs the Complete Preludes here in a PCMS debut recital that promises “Chopin playing in the great tradition: rich-toned, generous though never profligate with its rubato, and invested with a vast range of keyboard color” (The Guardian).
