Carnegie Hall Preview Concert on March 3rd, 2018


“…an exceptional, gifted  young artist.”
Robert Mann, Founding Member Juilliard String Quartet

A pianist of extraordinary sensitivity, intelligence, and breadth of dramatic expression, Jeffrey LaDeur makes his solo debut at Carnegie Hall with this recital commemorating the life and works of Claude Debussy on the centenary of his death. Inspired by Couperin and Chopin, Debussy’s Études of 1915 are the summation of the composer’s mature genius in writing for solo piano. The three composers are presented in musical dialogue, tracing the unbroken line of tradition through centuries of French music.
 

“Awe-inspiring” and “ear-opening.”
Stephen Smoliar, San Francisco Examiner 

Sharing the stage with (his good friend) LaDeur—and celebrating his return to Portland audiences following his education at The Eastman School of Music (which began at age 15)—pianist and pedagogue, Johnandrew Slominski will perform a selection of Chopin Mazurkas and Barcarolle. In 2017, Slominski joined the faculty of Linfield College as an artist-in-residence and music theorist.

Our new web site is live!  We worked with Azunga to create a new web site that was easy to find new products, allows us to add new functionality to the site over time, and is scalable for the future.  We’ve added a ton of new pianos (both new and pre-owned), updated many, many piano pictures, and updated our piano listings to now include piano videos!  Now you can see and hear your favorite pianos from the comfort of your computer.

In addition to the new piano listings and the new web site management system we have a new events management system in place.  Now you can see all the details about a new piano event in a list, on a calendar, or see a history of the previous events we’ve held.  Our new event management system even allows our visitors to export the dates to their favorite calendar so that they never forget about that next big piano recital at Michelles.  Keep a look out for new events in the future.
