SALON SERIES: The New Yorkers

Karén Hakobyan and Eiko Kano

October 25, 6 pm - 7:30 pm

 

Salon Series, the Parrish Art Museum’s concert program featuring world-class artists performing in an intimate, casual setting, presents pianist Karén Hakobyan and violinist Eiko Kano.

Described as “a musician of abundant gifts and bountiful ideas” by New York Concert Review, and “an immensely talented and dynamic performer” by Deseret Morning News, Armenian American pianist, composer, and conductor Karén Hakobyan is a versatile force on the international music scene. Since his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of seventeen, he has performed in major concert halls in Armenia, Argentina, Mexico, Germany, France, Japan, and the US. He is a top prizewinner of multiple international piano and composition competitions and holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, Mannes College of Music, and the University of Utah. Hakobyan has appeared as a soloist with orchestras across several continents. His performances have been broadcasted on WQXR (New York’s classical radio station), WMFT (Chicago’s classical station), Argentine National Radio, Monterrey’s (Mexico) Op. 102 station, and Armenian National Radio. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Pegasus: the Orchestra, based in New York and a member of The New Yorkers founded by his duo partner, Eiko Kano.

Described as an artist with “electrifying intensity and lyrical expression” by Kyoto newspaper, Japanese violinist Eiko Kano is known for her dynamic performances. Eiko is the winner of multiple international competitions including the 4th International Competition of Tokyo and the Forval Scholarship, through which she was granted the Stradivarius Rainville for two years. Kano currently serves as an assistant concertmaster in the Albany Symphony Orchestra and plays regularly in the New York Philharmonic. She is also an artistic advisory board member and concertmaster of Pegasus: The Orchestra. Eiko received her BM and MM from Manhattan School of Music. Her CDs, A Manhattan Story, were released in 2017 and 2019 and were both featured on JAL airlines in flight audio programming. Eiko is currently playing on Stradivarius “Wilhelmi” violin made in 1725 loaned to her by Nippon Music Foundation.
