Pianoforte with Elizabeth Child
Born in Georgia, Elizabeth Child gave her first solo recital at age 10 and made her televised orchestral debut at age 12, eventually leading to a New York debut in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Will Crutchfield of the New York Times stated in his review, “One always sensed that something was happening in her playing, and that made it easy to enjoy.”
Child’s orchestral appearances include the Juilliard Orchestra at Lincoln Center under Stanisław Skrowaczewski, the summer festival orchestras of Interlochen and Brevard, and the symphonies of Columbus, GA, and Spartanburg, SC. As first-prize winner of the Twelfth Artists International Auditions, she was the featured soloist in the PBS television special How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall? an intimate portrait of a young artist preparing for her professional debut. A winner in the New York Piano Teachers Congress and the Society of American Musicians competitions, she has performed as soloist and chamber musician in the United States and Taiwan.
Child holds a doctorate from the Juilliard School, a graduate degree from the University of Michigan, and an undergraduate degree from Converse College, all in piano performance. She studied with Josef Raieff, Dmitri Paperno, Louis Nagel, Henry Rauch, and Dorothy Taubman.
Child returns to the Museum’s Pianoforte series for our 2018-2019 season. Other Asheville appearances have included the Asheville Chopin Club concerts, and Asheville Area Piano Forum benefit concerts.
For today’s performance, Child features an all-Bach program.
