Sara Davis Buechner

Considered one of the world's preeminent pianists, Sara Davis Buechner was called "A pianist of exceptional merit [and] a musician of evident integrity" by England's Pianoforte magazine, and a "musician of stature" by the Greenwich Times. But it was probably the Toronto Star that put it best: "In the concert hall, there are still too few Sara Buechners."

  • Mozart—Sonata in E-flat Major: Delicate and deceptively complex, this brief diversion for the piano is defined by its immaculate construction and its recurring, always playful themes.
  • Arensky—Four Salon Pieces: The title sounds serene, but something chaotic grips the keys in this quartet of short pieces that seems, according to the Washington Post, "to defy the laws of physics."
  • Stravinsky—Trois Mouvements de Petrouchka: The piano plays the role of an impish, energetic puppet that tries the patience of the orchestra, which responds with foreboding trumpet blasts.
  • Turina—Bailete (Suite de danzas del siglo XIX): Propriety and precision lend a stately air to these works by Joaquín Turina, but a minor key gives the performance a faint aroma of brimstone.
  • Gershwin—Four Foxtrots: The foxtrot was a form that Gershwin returned to time and again, and so Buechner's bundling of four of these dances could be seen as the master distilled to his favourite form.
