Listen on Demand: Pianist Martina Filjak
One of the most exciting young artists to emerge in recent years, pianist Martina Filjak joins WGTE's Brad Cresswell in the studio to talk about her season-opening performances of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Toledo Symphony.
Filjak is garnering international praise for her poetic passion and technical mastery at the keyboard as well as for her charismatic personality and magnetic stage presence.
In 2009, Filjak won first prize in the Cleveland International Piano Competition. She has appeared at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam; the Palau de la Música Catalana and L'Auditori, Barcelona; the Palais des Congrès, Strasbourg; the Shanghai Oriental Art Center and Severance Hall in Cleveland. Her recording of Soler sonatas was released in 2011 on the Naxos label.
