Event description

Description

Returning from Biarritz, France to perform at Meadowlark for the second time, Marina Pacowski will perform the world premiere of Frank Proto's Piano Concerto written for her.

Marina Pacowski was born in Biarritz, France. She has many different sides to her artistic career: she is at once a classical and jazz pianist, actress, choral director, jazz singer with several groups and has performed throughout Europe and the United States. She studied with Ada Labèque, Alain Motard, Angéline Pondepeyre and Peio Çabalette and she perfected her technique with Bruno Rigutto, Margaret Singer, Cordelia Huberti, Serge Zapolski and the conductors Robert Delcroix and Dejan Savic. She won the Hanz Gabor Belvedere International Competition (Vienna, Austria) shortly after being chosen as the Singers Coach Director for the Young Voices of the Rhine for the 2000/2001 season, as part of the National Opera of the Rhine's program. She also won first prizes in piano, accompaniment, chamber music, analysis and composition at the Conservatoires of Bayonne, Bordeaux, and Rueil Malmaison in Paris. As a solo pianist, she premiered the piano concerto La Chambre d'Amour by Peio Çabalette, directed by Xavier Delette and subsequently played it with Thierry Malandin's CNN Ballet at Kursaal in San Sebastian, Spain, at the Musikaste Festival, at the Gare de Midi in Biarritz and at the Grand Théâtre de Saint Quentin in Paris. In 2014 she premiered a concerto by the same composer, with the Orchestra of Bayonne and the Basque Coast, under the direction of Benjamin Levy. As a chamber musician, her repertoire includes all of Schumann's oeuvre, Brahms, Messiaen, Debussy, Claude Bolling and many of Beethoven’s works as well as contemporary works by composers such as Français Peio Çabalette, Bernard Salles and the American composer Frank Proto.

Frank Proto has written music for Max Rudolf, Doc Severinsen, Thomas Schippers, Cleo Laine, Michael Gielen, Duke Ellington, Jesús López-Cobos, Dave Brubeck, Sherill Milnes, Eddie Daniels, Benjamin Luxon, Gerry Mulligan, Paul Winfield, Roberta Peters, François Rabbath, Ruggerio Ricci, Richard Stoltzman, Keith Lockhart, Peter Wiley, Alexander Kerr, and Lucero Tena. This list of collaborators is extraordinary for its length and diversity as well as for its high level of artistry. Frank has indeed worked with many of the 20th and 21st century’s greatest artists. Frank’s symphonic compositions have been commissioned and/or performed by almost every Major and Metropolitan orchestra in North America as well as many orchestras in Europe, Asia, Central and South America.
