Performance Information

“There’s something of Martha Argerich about the way she combines chunky articulation and sparkling clarity with whimsical touches.” – The Times (London) 

Gramophone’s 2017 “Artist of the Year” returns for her first Washington Performing Arts performance since her 2014 Hayes Piano Series debut— following which, the Washington Post wrote, “Her startling technique remains among the most faultless of young pianists today.” The 24-year-old attracted international attention at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, where she won the Silver Medal and Audience Award. Of her interpretations of Chopin’s Études in her March 2019 New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall, the New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini wrote, “The best performances convey [the Études’s] musical riches. In that regard, Beatrice Rana set a new standard for me…. She made the pieces sound as poetic and colorful as anything Chopin ever wrote…. From the opening moments…Ms. Rana had the audience rapt.”

This performance is made possible through the generous support of Susan S. Angell.
