Pianist Lambis Vassiliadis In Recital
Saturday, February 25th at 7:30 pm
“One of the most distinguished Greek pianists of his generation…”
“…an impressive style of explosive pianism and artistic sensibility.”
Kerrytown Concert House is honored to present internationally celebrated, award-winning Greek pianist Lambis Vassiliadis in a solo recital featuring the works of Brahms, Medtner, and Tchaikovsky!
Solo piano recitals played on KCH’s treasured Hamburg Steinway are a special experience reminiscent of the 19th-century style salon concerts. Our Classical Salon Series offers a special opportunity to hear world-class pianists such as this in KCH’s intimate living room setting.
Please join us for what we know will be a compelling evening of music with an equally compelling international pianist in KCH’s distinctive performance space!
This performance is supported by Genre Underwriters, Maurice & Linda Binkow.
A distinguished Greek pianist, Mr. Lambis Vassiliadis represents an impressive style of explosive pianism and artistic sensibility.

For his Schumann -Brahms recording Charles Timbrell noted in Fanfare Music Magazine: “I highly recommend this Carnaval, whether it might be your first or your twentieth recording of the work”. The first worldwide recording of the Piano Sonatas by Allen Sapp was honored by the American Record Guide as one of the best recordings of 2001. Finally the Gramophone Magazine included Vassiliadis’ recording of the Brahms Variations on a Theme of Paganini among the “selected discography of the 20th century” (B. Morrison, March 2003).
Other CD’s (by Aardvark Media) include a Chopin Album, a Tchaikovsky Album, orchestra repertoire with the Chamber Music Orchestra of Tuebingen (Germany) and the Fairbanks Symphony (USA) , an all Liszt-Mozart transcriptions and two recordings with works of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Schumann with the Ionian Piano Quartet (Amicme Classical).
