Young Steinway Artist to Perform at New Steinway Gallery in Lenexa, at 7 p.m., March 7
Classical pianist and Young Steinway Artist Haley Myles is returning to her hometown of Kansas City to perform at the recently-opened Steinway Gallery in Lenexa. Haley will be presenting an all-Chopin recital featuring multiple genres, including nocturnes, polonaises, waltzes, mazurkas, études, amongst others.
Haley’s six-city US concert tour is an extension of her latest album, which features the complete set of Chopin’s twenty-one Nocturnes. Inspired by the intimate salon aesthetic that was prevalent in Chopin’s time, Haley recorded and produced the album on her Steinway and Sons M at her home in Lyon, France. After its release in July of last year, the album has aired in its entirety on NPR and on radio stations throughout Europe. ‘The Complete Nocturnes’ was also featured in several international publications including Gramophone (UK), PianoNews (Germany), and La Revue Générale (Belgium), receiving enthusiastic reviews.
Haley invites you to join her on the 10th of March at 7pm for a romantically-inspired evening. Tickets are available by calling the Steinway Gallery at: 913-815-1000
‘All I could do was sit in wonder at her musical insights and truthfulness, as though a veil had been lifted between player and listener.’ – Julian Haylock, former editor of International Piano (UK)
‘Through her recording, I touch the soul of a spontaneous musician who has not only deepened her interpretation, but who delivers it with immediate truth.’ Jean Lacrox – critic for Crescendo and La Revue Générale (Belgium)
‘Myles captures the rubato with such a control as to create a flowing fiver of sound. She masterfully creates a dramatic line that is so important in the nocturnes, reaching outcrying heights.’ – Carsten Dürer – PianoNews Magazine (Germany)
