David Fray performs in NYC!
In Mr. Fray we have yet another amazing young piano talent in his 20’s!
French pianist David Fray performed two concerts last week with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado, at the west coast’s Hollywood Bowl. He makes his New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall, the iconic classical music venue, on November 16, 2010, with a program of Bach and Schubert, including the Four Impromptus, D. 899, in Zankel Hall.
As you can hear from the videos below, David Fray truly brings his unique musical sensitivity and expressiveness to Schubert. His interpretation is warm, enthusiastic and rich in contrasts. In my view, his playing is introspective, and the pauses are as eloquent as the sounded notes. His phrasing is eminently musical: Mr. Fray is confident in his art, and we are richer as a result of his performance.
In the video below, David Fray discusses getting lost in the intimacy of Schubert’s music, and the importance of Schubert’s Impromptus in his early musical training.
And in the following video, he performs one of Bach’s keyboard concerti:
