Stravinsky: Pulcinella, Suite Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 Cecile Licad, piano American Premiere TBA Pulcinella was the gateway to Stravinsky's second phase as a composer, the neoclassical. He wrote of Pulcinella: “Pulcinella was my discovery of the past, the epiphany through which the whole of my late work became possible. It was a backward look, of course — the first of many love affairs in that direction — but it was a look in the mirror, too.” Called a "pianist's pianist" by The New Yorker, Cecile Licad's artistry is a blend of daring musical instinct and the superb training. Her natural talent was honed at the Curtis Institute of Music by three of the greatest performer/pedagogues of our time: Rudolf Serkin, Seymour Lipkin and Mieczyslaw Horszowski.
