TENTH ANNUAL ELIZABETH DUNAWAY PIANO FESTIVAL

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, October 7 - 9, 2016

This year's Festival features the  music of the masters, as performed by two international artists, the passionate powerhouse Victor Goldberg on Friday evening, and the dazzling virtuoso Janice Weber on Saturday evening.

The Festival concludes on Sunday afternoon at 3 pm with the Student Piano Recital,  featuring the area's best young pianists performing on OPA's fabled Steinway.   It is here that talented local students have the opportunity to perform on a world-class piano in front of a live audience.  Admission to this performance is free.

The Festival honors the memory of Elizabeth Dunaway Burnham, founder and first chairperson of Ogunquit Performing Arts.  A pianist herself, Betty studied, performed and taught piano for most of her life.  She also saw to it that OPA acquired its spectacular Steinway Concert Model C Grand Piano, which still remains OPA's greatest treasure.

"Victor Goldberg is an excellent pianist with a formidable technique, a powerful and a romantic soul...[his] intensely expressive performance had a powerful emotional impact."  Edith Eisler, New York Concert Review.

He has been hailed as a performer with "astute interpretive sensibilities" by Allan Kozinn of The New York Times, and has received praise from The Washington Post for his "emotionally frank style" and "technique to burn."

Victor Goldberg is a strikingly original yet highly sensitive and imaginative pianist.  He is a master of focused emotion whose commanding stage presence has won him a major following worldwide.   His dramatic program will include Scarlatti, Chopin, and Mussorgsky.

Refreshments will be served.

“As Weber conquered Liszt, she also conquered the audience … Her performance of the Etudes was indeed transcendent.”  San Francisco Chronicle 

“There may now be several fire-eating piano virtuosos who can execute the original notes, but few can liberate the prophetic music [of the Liszt Etudes] as masterfully as Janice Weber does here."  Time

Janice Weber returns to Ogunquit to play one of these “ferociously difficult” Liszt Etudes, as well as works by Beethoven, Czerny, Grieg, and Schumann.

“Weber's grasp of the musical language outshone even her technique, which is high praise on a program as challenging as hers.”  Washington Post
