Sergei Saratovsky – Sunday February 21, 2016


Sergei Saratovsky – Piano
Sunday February 21, 2016 2:00 pm

Sergei has been here before. In 2013, when another artist became ill, he stepped in and totally wowed the audience! His enthusiastic reception was not surprising. The Russian-Canadian pianist has performed before the leaders of both his native and new lands.

He is an exceptional and versatile performer with the rare gift of taking an audience on a breathtaking voyage through the heart of music to the essence of it’s beauty. The artist touches listeners with the sensitivity of his interpretations and impressive technique; his energy, focus and musicianship blend into a spectacular tour de force in performance.

Since his last visit, Sergei has given concerts around the world and toured in a piano duo with his Moscow based brother. He also recently established a piano chamber trio that is truly international. Sergei’s studies did not stop when he received his doctorate degree. He continues to do research, publish in journals and present at major music conferences.
