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

Indian-American pianist Pallavi Mahidhara made her orchestral debut at the age of 10, performing at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago. She is the Second Prize winner and Young Audience Award winner of the 2014 Geneva International Piano Competition. She also won Second Prize at the VI International Prokofiev Competition in Saint Petersburg, Russia. She has been a winner of the Steinway Förderpreis in Germany, the Astral Artists National Auditions in the US, and has received on multiple occasions, the “Sobresaliente” Award from the hands of Queen Sofía of Spain.

Praised for her unique artistry and charismatic stage presence, she has appeared in solo and orchestral concerts across five continents, performing at venues such as the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC (United States), Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid (Spain), and the Grand Hall of the Dimitri Shostakovich Philharmonia in Saint Petersburg, (Russia).

The 2017-2018 season has included solo and chamber music concerts with Curtis on Tour at the Athens Festival in Greece, a duo recital with Diemut Poppen in Cyprus through the Pharos Arts Foundation. A few upcoming highlights in 2018 include recitals and concerto performances throughout Europe, as well as a duo recital with violinist Bomsori Kim at the City Hall Concert Hall in Hong Kong through Premier Performances. She is honored to be joining the 2019-2020 concert season of "Building Bridges" with Sir András Schiff.

Pallavi has performed at important festivals such as Marlboro Music and Verbier Festival. She has given chamber music performances with renowned artists such as Diemut Poppen and Arnold Steinhardt, and has performed under the baton of Arjan Tien and Thomas Sanderling, amongst others.

Pallavi’s musical interests cover an extensive range, from standard Classical works, to music of contemporary and living composers, to fusion and crossover projects. She has collaborated with drummer Questlove of "The Roots" and international singer/songwriter Keren Ann for a genre-defying concert, fusing the classical world with hiphop, jazz, and folk-pop artists, at the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. She gave performances of Steve Reich’s Double Sextet with the multi-Grammy Award-winning ensemble, “eighth blackbird”. She has 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 the past, she has been invited to work with renowned Indian Classical violinist Dr. L Subramaniam at his annual workshop in Bangalore.

Pallavi received her Bachelor’s Degree from the Curtis Institute of Music, and her Master’s Degree at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler. She studied for several years at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía under the tutelage of Dimitri Bashkirov. She will return this July as Professor of Piano at the Music and Culture Summer Camp in Madrid.

"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
