Concert Hour: Howard Brubeck Theatre
From Los Angeles, Sellers returns to Concert Hour with a program featuring music from Domenico Scarlatti, Frederic Chopin, George Gershwin, Modest Mussorgsky and others. “A genuinely stirring exhibition of bravura… massive in tone and imposing in concept,” says the Los Angeles Times. (Note: this performance will be held in the Howard Brubeck Theatre.)
Michael Sellers is an internationally acclaimed pianist known for a strong and commanding presence and temperament, exceptional virtuoso equipment, and a warmly personal, spacious and poetic style of performance.
A seasoned performer, Sellers has built a universal repertoire that reflects his eclectic tastes and interests: Bach and Scarlatti to Stravinsky’s Petrouchka and Bartok, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and Brahms, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, to the Impressionists and contemporary composers.
Sellers has also presented premieres of many new works, among them Touches by Leonard Bernstein.
A Steinway artist, in 2005, Sellers completed a 60 concert world tour that took him to four continents. This was his 22nd European tour, which was repeated in 2006 and 2007. Now, in November of 2008, Sellers will embarked on his 25th European tour, including an all Chopin program in Paris.
