November 8, 2013
The Concord Conservatory of Music presents Yelena Beriyeva, who will perform a solo concert on Friday, November 8th at 7:00 pm. Ms. Beriyeva is a member of the CCM piano faculty. Her performance will include Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 18, which has been nicknamed ‘The Hunt’ for its jaunty rhythms, and Brahms’ Six Pieces for Piano, Op. 118, one of this Romantic Period composer’s later works. Ms. Beriyeva will also perform compositions by Chopin and Scarlatti. Ms. Beriyeva has been called “the paragon of the concert pianist” by the L. A. Examiner. Yelena Beriyeva grew up in the Republic of Georgia, where she began performing at the young age of five. Since then she has performed in venues all over the world, including Russia, Venezuela, Canada, and the United States, and she is known for her impeccable technique as well as her expressivity.
