Brigham Young University’s School of Music will present guest pianist and organist Joel Hastings on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital hall. This event is free.
The recital will feature a group of six pieces from “The Piano’s 12 Sides” by Carter Penn as well as Chopin’s Etude in C Major. The final number following an intermission will be the Sonata in B-flat Major by Beethoven.
Hastings is Canadian-born and was chosen as the winner of the 2006 International Web Concert Hall Competition and the 1993 International Bach Competition in Washington, D.C. Reviewers have described his playing as passionate, mesmerizing, hypnotic and transcendental.
He is an assistant professor of piano at Florida State University in Tallahassee and has earned ARCT diplomas in piano and organ from the Royal Conservatory of Music as well as a doctorate in piano and a degree in organ performance from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
