Hailed a “superlative pianist,” (Journal of the IAWM), Clare Longendyke is a passionate soloist and chamber musician recognized for her colorful musicality, technical fluency, and ability to interpret repertoires across the musical spectrum. Clare has performed solo and chamber music recitals across Europe and North America and has won 1st place prizes in national competitions in Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, and Massachusetts. An active performer of new music, she has premiered over 75 new works since 2012 and enjoys presenting programs that intertwine and juxtapose well-loved piano standards with new and unfamiliar works by living composers. This Sound Bites solo program is no different: alongside an early piano sonata by Beethoven, movements from Ravel’s Miroirs, and Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Clare will perform pieces by living composers Amy Williams, Michael Gilbertson, and Missy Mazzoli. www.clarelongendyke.com.
