December 23, 2015Prodigious piano masteryA very nice interview/review was published by Malini White in The Hindu Newspaper from my concert in Bangalore! Here's a clip; please enjoy the full article by clicking on the link below:

"Opening with three pieces from Ravel’s Miroirs, she proved her mastery ranged from the light touch that evoked the fluttering moths of Noctuelles, to the repeated stabbing staccato of the more famous Alborada del Gracioso, notorious for some of the most difficult episodes in piano music..."

PALLAVI MAHIDHARA
PIANO



Known for her artistic versatility, Pallavi Mahidhara combines mature musical insight, an astounding technique, and a charismatic stage presence. She has appeared in solo and orchestral concerts across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, performing at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Chicago Symphony Center in Chicago, Verizon Hall in Philadelphia, Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid, Spain, Teatro del Lago in Frutillar, Chile, Casa de la Música in Quito, Ecuador, National Centre for the Performing Arts in Mumbai, India, National Concert Hall in Beijing, China, City Hall in Cape Town, South Africa, and the Grand Hall of the Dimitri Shostakovich Philharmonia in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Ms. Mahidhara is the Second Prize winner of the 2014 Geneva International Piano Competition, as well as the Young Audience Award. She recently won the Steinway Förderpreis in Berlin. She also won Second Prize at the VI International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia, and in 2013, she won the Astral Artists National Auditions in Philadelphia. In September 2008, on a few hours' notice, she stepped in for Van Cliburn at the Liberty Medal Award ceremony, honoring former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Also in 2008, she was awarded Fourth Prize, the Audience Award, and the Prize for “Best Romantic Concerto” at the UNISA International Piano Competition. She has been featured on “Piano Grand,” a celebration of the Piano’s 300th birthday, hosted by Billy Joel and produced by the Smithsonian Institution and the Maryland Public Television. Ms. Mahidhara was awarded the “Most Promising Young Pianist” at the prestigious Verbier Academy in Switzerland, and received a $25,000 Davidson Fellowship at the age of 15 for her extraordinary achievements in the field of music.

Ms. Mahidhara made her orchestral debut at the age of 10, performing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 with the Disney’s Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago. Her first appearance with a major orchestra was at the age of 14 with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC. Other orchestral appearances include the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Bangor Symphony Orchestra, Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra, Aspen Concert Orchestra, Banff Festival Orchestra in Canada, China National Symphony Orchestra in Beijing, Tianjin Symphony Orchestra, and Asturias National Orchestra in Spain. In 2009, she made her South American debut with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ecuador in Quito. She has performed solo and orchestral concerts in Frutillar, Chile, at the Teatro del Lago in 2014 and 2011. She performed twice with the Orquesta Sinfónica Freixenet in November 2012, making her orchestral debut in Madrid at the Auditorio Nacional de Música. Ms. Mahidhara has been returning almost yearly since 2008 to South Africa, performing solo and orchestral concerts throughout the country. She made her Russian debut in May 2015 with the Saint Petersburg Symphony Orchestra in the Grand Hall of the Dimitri Shostakovich Philharmonia. In 2016, she performed in the US, Hong Kong, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland, France, Spain, and South Africa. She has performed chamber music with Members of the New York Philharmonic at Merkin Concert Hall in New York. Upcoming performances include a two week tour in Asia, and a recital with renowned violist Diemut Poppen in Madrid.

Ms. Mahidhara’s musical interests cover an extensive range, from standard Classical works, to music of contemporary and living composers, to fusion and crossover projects. In April 2011, she joined drummer Questlove of "The Roots" and international singer/songwriter Keren Ann for a genre-defying concert, fusing the classical world with hiphop, jazz, and folkpop artists, at the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. She has collaborated with the multi-Grammy Award-winning ensemble, “eighth blackbird”, with performances of Steve Reich’s Double Sextet. In November 2008, she gave several performances of Messiaen's Oiseaux Exotiques with the Curtis 20/21 Contemporary Ensemble, including at the French Embassy in Washington, DC. In 2004, she premiered a large piano work by one of India’s leading film composers, Vanraj Bhatia. This work, titled Fantasia and Fugue in C, is based on the Indian epic, The Mahabharata. In 2014, she was invited to work with renowned Indian Classical violinist Dr. L Subramaniam at his annual workshop in Bangalore. Extremely proud of her Indian heritage, Ms. Mahidhara is passionate about bridging the gap between the Eastern and Western classical music worlds, and actively pursues new possibilities and ideas to collaborate with other Indian artists of all genres.

Ms. Mahidhara has been a participant for three summers at the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, USA, headed by Richard Goode and Mitsuko Uchida. Other music festivals include the Encuentro de Música y Academia de Santander (Spain), Pablo Casals Festival (Prades, France), International Musician's Seminar at Prussia Cove (England), the Verbier Academy (Switzerland), the Aspen Music Festival (US), and the Banff Festival (Canada). She has performed twice at the Sangat Chamber Music Festival in Mumbai, India, collaborating with musicians from the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the London Philharmonic, and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

Ms. Mahidhara studied at the Escuela Superior de Música REINA SOFÍA under the tutelage of Dimitri Bashkirov, and is currently completing her Masters Degree at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler with Eldar Nebolsin. At the end of the 2012 and 2013 academic years, she and her piano quartet, respectively, received from the hands of Queen Sofía of Spain, the “Sobresaliente” Award, for Outstanding work and Excellence. She graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music in 2010 with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance, as a pupil of Ignat Solzhenitsyn. She has received invaluable lessons and masterclasses from great masters such as Richard Goode, Mitsuko Uchida, Pascal Rogé, Ferenc Rados, Leon Fleisher, Fou T'song, Menahem Pressler, and Naum Grubert.

"The high point was a brilliant performance by Pallavi Mahidhara of Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major [...] This work bristles with technical difficulties, and the slender and elegant young pianist overcame them with aplomb and confident calmness. And she conveyed a truly poetic feeling in the many lyrical passages."Michael GreenartSMart

"Quel tempérament magnifique chez Pallavi Mahidhara (27 ans, Etats-Unis). Frêle et comme sortie d’un conte des Mille et Une Nuits, cette souriante jeune femme aux origines indiennes s’empare du Concerto n° 3 de Prokofiev avec un sacré tempérament. Oublié le contexte du concours ; nous sommes au concert le temps de l’Opus 26 ! Autorité impressionnante face au clavier et dans le dialogue avec l’orchestre, riche palette expressive, remarquable aplomb rythmique : la pianiste montre autant de musicalité que métier – elle a donné son premier concert avec orchestre à 10 ans… Le Deuxième Prix lui revient, tout comme le Prix du Jeune Public." [English Translation: What a fantastic personality is that of Pallavi Mahidhara (27 yo, USA). Delicate and as if coming out of a tale of the Arabian Nights, this smiling young woman of Indian origin takes over Prokofiev’s Concerto no 3 with a truly hell of a temperament. Forget the context of the Competition - we are at a concert at the time of Opus 26! Impressive authority in front of the keyboard and in the dialogue with the orchestra, rich expressive palette, remarkable rhythmic aplomb: the pianist shows as much musicality as practical experience - she gave her first concert with orchestra at 10 … The Second Prize is awarded to her, as well as the Young Audience Prize.]Alain CochardConcert Classic Journal
