Outstanding pianist Rob Auler will present an evening concert (7:30pm) and an afternoon Master Class (4-6pm) at the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts (TCFA) on Saturday, April 1.

Rob-Auler_Press-Image1The New York Times commends Robert Auler’s playing for its “extraordinary rhythmic clarity and expression.” American Record Guide cites his “elegant tone and uncanny sense of voicing.” Auler has won first prize in national and international piano competitions, including the Society of American Musicians and the Stravinsky
Awards.  He has performed on six continents, in notable venues, such as Carnegie Hall, Teatro Colon, and Shanghai Symphony Hall, and in summer music festivals including the Aspen Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, and the Monadanock Festival, to name a few.   Additionally, he has collaborated with composers such as Steve Reich, Aaron Jay Kernis, Carter Pann, and George Tsontakis, and with world-class ensembles such as the Ying Quartet, MIRO Quartet and Sybarite5.

Mr. Auler will hold a Master Class for a very limited number of participating students; a small audience of observers can attend as well. In the evening, drawing on his wide range and jazz expertise, he has prepared an evening program called “Outtakes ” This recital presentation pairs three classical variation sets (Mozart, Beethoven, Mendellsohn) with three “jazz variation sets”: faithful transcriptions of Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans solo piano performances. With commentary.
