INESA SINKEVYCH IN HAVANA
Inesa Sinkevych is a Ukrainian-born pianist now living in New York, where she teaches at the Manhattan School of Music. Winner of many competition awards, she has played with the Minnesota Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic, and the Gulbenkian Orchestra of Portugal, among many others.
Among her performances have been concerts at Weill and Merkin Recital Halls in New York, Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv, the Purcell Room in London, the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, and Hong King City Hall. On the visit to Cuba where she gave the present recital, she also played with the Orquesta Nacional de Cuba. She has toured China and played in many other venues in Europe and the United States.
Sinkevych’s CD of Schubert piano music, including the great Sonata in A Major, was selected as a CD of the month by Music Web. Reviewer Guy Aron called her “a Schubertian of real distinction.” In addition to solo performances, Sinkevych is a member of Trio Tartufo, with flutist Jessica Aura Taskov, and the Astraeus Duo, with violinist Anat Malkin Almani.
