BYU's Scott Holden to present piano recital April 6

Scott Holden, a Juilliard School of Music alumnus and faculty pianist at Brigham Young University, will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 6, in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

He will begin with a Haydn piece and then move on to the Nocturne in E flat Major, Op. 55 No. 2 and Ballade in A flat Major, Op. 47 by Chopin. Listeners will hear a set of valses by Ravel and a recent piece called “Young American Invention” by BYU faculty member Steven L. Ricks before intermission. Afterward, Holden will play a full set of Schumann.

Holden continues an active career as soloist, chamber musician and teacher. He holds music degrees from the University of Michigan, Manhattan School of Music and the Juilliard School, where he was awarded the Horowitz Prize. In addition to his American studies, he also spent a year studying and performing in Budapest at the Liszt Academy where he was a Fulbright Scholar.

His 1996 Carnegie Hall debut recital was a result of winning first prize in the 1996 Leschetizky International Piano Competition. It received high critical praise in the New York Concert Review. In demand as a performer, this season will bring him to American venues in Michigan, Ohio, Washington D.C., Vermont, Texas, Idaho and Utah, as well as Mexico and Germany. He has taught courses at the Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music and is also a member of BYU’s American Piano Quartet.
