Piano phenomenon Michael Davidman will take the stage at Chapel Restoration, May 15, in a program of Chopin, Couperin, Franck, Poulenc and Ravel. The Sunday concert, at 4:00, is free. Audience donations welcome. Proof of vaccination and masks required.

Recent master’s graduate from Juilliard, with undergraduate degree from Curtis Institute, Davidman has amassed more competition wins, awards, solo performances with major symphonies and critical acclaim than can be fully listed here. Among them, first place in the Precollege Concerto Competition at age 10, at 12 and again at 16. Chosen at age 13 to perform in a master class by Lang Lang, who said of him, “You play beautifully and are technically brilliant.” Grand Prize, USMA Foundation’s 9th International Music Competition. 2021 American Pianists Awards Finalist, “One of the best performances I’ve heard in recent years,” Upstage. “His account of Rachmaninoff’s complex and quirky sonata was electrifying…gasps were heard from the spellbound audience,” The Classical Music Journal.

Davidman’s concert appearances include as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony, Monterey Symphony and West Point Band; as soloist or chamber player in Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Recital Hall, and Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center; and in the Burgos International Music Festival, Spain, Teatro Alfieri, Italy, and in St. Petersburg with the International Academy of Music.

A New York native, Davidman has received scholarships from the Chopin Foundation and from Juilliard. Piano lessons began at age five at the Greenwich House Music School.

The Chapel Restoration is located at 45 Market Street, directly across from the Metro-North Train Station, parking free on Sundays. This concert is made possible, in part, through a grant from Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link with public funds from Putnam County and NYS Council on the Arts with support from the Governor’s Office and the Legislature. This season’s Sunday Music Series is also supported by contributions from a chapel board member and from a member of the Cold Spring community.

Bohemian Trio

Yosvany Terry, saxophone; Yves Dharamraj, cello; Orlando Alonso, piano

Classical, jazz and world music: the diverse sounds and rhythms of Cuba and the Americas

The Bohemian Trio Brings Its Signature Sounds and Rhythms to the Chapel Restoration

“Together, these musicians honor heritages that blur more than reinforce borders: the blend of European and African traditions that centuries ago amounted to a New World.”   The Wall Street Journal

The concert in the historic Chapel on the Hudson features Yosvany Terry, saxophone; Yves Dharamraj, cello; and Orlando Alonso, piano; performing their unique melding of music from diverse traditions. The Bohemian Trio was formed in 2013 by the three musicians, who come from different cultural and musical backgrounds, to explore the idea that their blend of traditions would speak to the true voice of the Americas: a cacophony of cultures that, together, forges a new identity that transcends Old World boundaries. With roots in Cuba, France, Trinidad, and the US, the Trio shifts intuitively among classical, jazz, and world music. At the heart of their collaborations are Yosvany Terry’s original works, which are driven by Afro-Cuban rhythms, sweeping classical melodies, and a touch of improvisation; rounded out with commissioned works by contemporary composers and favorites from the classical repertoire.
