classical, masterclasses
Lani Hall

In the first Abell Piano Series of the year, hear pianist Daria Rabotkina in a recital of Schubert, Rachmaninoff and Paul Harvey Aurandt. Later, watch as Rabotkina leads an educational masterclass with UCLA piano students.

Masterclass Repertoire:

Amanda Lee – Barcarolle, Chopin

Brandon Zhao, Beethoven sonata op 53 1st mvt

Polina Cherezova, Schubert a minor Sonata 1st mvt

This event is made possible thanks to a gift from Barbara Abell who established the David L. Abell Piano Masters Series in honor of her late husband. Pianos were a passion for David, the owner of David L. Abell’s Fine Pianos in Los Angeles, which became a hot-spot for musical legends such as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Andre Previn, George Shearing, Bob Hope, Tony Bennett and Benny Carter. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-19 David L. Abell Piano Master Series.
