Principal keyboard artist for the Utah Symphony Jason Hardink will be performing at Brigham Young University’s Madsen Recital Hall Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. The event is free.
Hardink will present Impromptus, opus 90 and the Sonata for Piano in C minor, D. 958 by Franz Schubert and two Klavierstücke by Arnold Schoenberg. Both composers made unique contributions to piano literature during a transformative period in piano performance history.
The concert is the first of four solo recitals in Salt Lake City and at BYU devoted to late works of Franz Schubert and the complete solo piano music of the Second Viennese School.
Hardink, a native of Rhode Island, is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and Rice University. He has served as pianist for the Pittsburg New Music Ensemble and the Canyonlands New Music Ensemble and as guest recitalist and adjudicator for both the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition and the Oberlin International Piano Competition. This season is his second as the artistic director of NOVA, Utah’s critically acclaimed chamber music series.
