Salon Series offers intimate concerts with a new generation of classical musicians— this time with a performance from Bulgarian born pianist Nadejda Vlaeva.

Vlaeva’s playing has been acclaimed wherever she has appeared. Lazar Berman called her talent “God-given” and Arnold Steinhardt, leader of the Guarneri String Quartet, praised her as “one of those people of extraordinary ability whom we hope for but rarely see.” She has performed solo recitals and with orchestras throughout Europe and the United States. In September, 2016 she premiered works by Sergei Bortkiewicz and Vladimir Drozdoff in Carnegie Hall.

Her major awards include First Prize, Liszt competition in Lucca, Italy, Third Prize, International Liszt Competition in Budapest, and the Yamaha Award for best Brahms interpreation. Her Liszt CD won the International Grand Prix "Liszt" du Disque. Her CD of Bach Transcriptions by Saint-Saens and Isidor Philipp for Hyperion Records was a BBC Music Magazine Instrumental Choice of the month. Its opening track inspired a short animation movie “Ouverture” that premiered at Lincoln Center. Vlaeva's most recent CD, piano music of Bortkiewicz, was released by Hyperion in 2016 to rave reviews.
