Piccolo Virtuoso Jean-Louis Beaumadier
BOSTON DEBUT, OCT. 25, 2014 @ 4pm
"Jean-Louis Beaumadier is not only one of the finest piccolo soloists alive today, but also a remarkable musician. When he plays--whether a Telemann fantasia, the Bach Partita, Genin's variations on 'Carnival of Venice,' or fiendishly difficult contemporary works by Damase and Donatoni, his listeners are first and foremost aware of the music. To hear and witness his virtuosity in person is an unforgettable experience."    - Leone Buyse
"Everything he plays is stupendous. I don't know of a single living musician whose EVERY note is as memorable and emotional."
- Sheryl Cohen
"...Paganini of the piccolo."
- Jean-Pierre Rampal
Jean-Louis Beaumadier will perform a solo piccolo recital selected from the following:  Michelis, Reichert, Rabboni, Brahms, Kreisler, Andersen, Fontbonne, Elgar, Godard, Damare, Donatoni, with Veronique Poltz at the piano.
The recital will open with  flute performances by BFA Artist-in-Residence Brendan V. Ryan, BFA Young Artist Amy Lipman, and the Maliotis Chamber Players. Works by Sancan, CPE Bach, and Via. BFA Faculty Deborah DeWolf Emery at the piano.
The concert event also includes a one-of-a-kind interview with Jean-Louis Beaumadier on stage!
