Maxim Bernard will perform a Valentine's Day concert in Kaslo

The Kaslo Concert Society is pleased to present pianist Maxim Bernard in recital at St. Andrew’s United Church on Friday, February 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Born in Quebec City, he began piano studies at the relatively late age of 13, but his outstanding talent and work ethic promptly led to national and international recognition.

Qualities that have been praised by critics include his commendable technique, surprising maturity, boundless imagination, and rare musical sensitivity.

In the words of Manahem Pressler, “It is his scope and range as a pianist that set him apart. He can play with great power, and still maintain intimate sensitivity in his music.” High praise from one of the world’s premier chamber musicians!

Bernard’s Kaslo recital will feature  works composed during the years of the First World War by the so-called impressionistic composers, Ravel, Debusy, Rachmaninoff and others.

Tickets at $22 are available at Figments in Kaslo or at the door. School age children are admitted free when accompanied by an adult patron.

Further information at 250-366-4623 or sjdks@kaslo.org.
