An Evening with Roberto Hidalgo
October 28, 2017
8:00PM at Hangar Theatre
Roberto Hidalgo has enthralled audiences with highly inventive programs that reflect his untrammeled curiosity towards the creative process behind each piece of music he performs. An enthusiastic advocate of new and seldom played music, his eclectic repertoire combines works by the great masters with those of lesser-known composers. Critics and audiences have hailed him as a pianist of “a profoundly analytical mind and tonal imagination” whose interpretations are imbued with “a deep emotional understanding of the music at hand.” Students and colleagues unanimously praise his outstanding career of more than twenty years, nourishing young musicians and fostering a lasting appreciation of the arduous yet beautiful craft of making music at the highest level.
"Robert Hidalgo is an internationally renowned musician, and I'm thrilled that he has accepted the invitation to perform for our Hangar audiences. His muscular and graceful interpretations of classical music will thrill the music-lovers in Ithaca, and I'm especially thrilled that he is including in his French and Russian classical repertoire a piece by Eastman Composer Carlos Sánchez-Gutiérrez, who like Roberto, is from Mexico. This promises to be a gem of an evening, and continues in the Hangar's tradition of bringing world-class performers to the Finger Lakes Community."
- Michael Barakiva, Hangar Artistic Director
