News Pianist Nigel Coxe plays Music for a Sunday Afternoon, October 16
MARLBORO, VT – (October 4, 2011) – Pianist Nigel Coxe will perform at 3:00pm on October 16, in Ragle Hall at Marlboro College. This performance, part of the fall Music for a Sunday Afternoon concert series, is free and open to the public. Coxe will play works by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, as well as works by Marlboro music professor Stan Charkey.
A Jamaican-born, British-trained pianist living in the U.S., Coxe is currently professor of music at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he combines his teaching with an active schedule of recitals and lecturing. He is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he studied with Harold Craxton, and has performed widely in Europe, Great Britain and America. He has appeared as soloist with the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Hallé Orchestra and many others.
The New York Times has written, “He goes to the heart of his music in modestly straightforward fashion, leading from expressive strength and shunning any sort of virtuoso exaggerations.”
Coxe has made two very well-received CDs, both available on the Titanic label: Music of Percy Grainger and Showstoppers, a disc featuring the music of Gershwin, Grainger and Eubie Blake.
