Yulianna Avdeeva, piano
at Longy's Pickman Hall (Cambridge, MA)
Debut Series

Longy's Pickman Hall

Pianist Yulianna Avdeeva, a Chopin Competition gold medalist with a flourishing career throughout Europe, makes her eagerly anticipated Celebrity Series debut, offering a bold and audacious program. Avdeeva performs Liszt’s daring, convention-defying keyboard compositions, each piece a captivating narrative of moods—from brooding and introspective to frenzied and impassioned—before plunging into Beethoven’s mighty Hammerklavier sonata. A towering masterpiece that has served as a proving ground for generations of brilliant pianists, the work embodies a profound fusion of rigorous structure and deep feeling, and the intricacies of a multi-voiced fugue. 

Avdeeva’s interpretation promises to be a riveting introduction to Boston. Experience her debut and hear her remarkable artistry.
