FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Music Society's next classical concert features a fascinating arrangement of two grand pianos, four hands, and tons of talent as exceptional concert pianists Konstantin Soukhovetski and Jacopo Giacopuzzi return to Fallbrook Sunday, Oct. 16 by popular demand.
"This is a very special event that our audience won't soon forget," said Bob Freaney, president of Fallbrook Music Society. "Mr. Soukouvetski and Mr. Giacopuzzi are truly outstanding concert pianists, displaying consummate artistry and technical finesse," he added. This exciting and demanding program entitled "Solo Due – 2 Pianos!" will feature masterworks such as Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Symphonic Dances No. 2" and his "Piano Concerto No. 4"; Nicolai Kapustin's "Concerto No. 2" and "Interstellar" for two pianos by Hans Zimmer/Jacopo Giacopuzzi in a performance that is sure to please.
Soukhovetski has a uniquely diverse artistic voice that reaches out to both classical and popular audiences. In 2020, he joined the adjunct faculty of his alma mater The Juilliard School, where he received his BM, MM, and AD with Jerome Lowenthal. He has been an artist-in-residence at Pianofest in the Hamptons since 2011.
His solo performances have taken him to London's Wigmore Hall, New York's Weill Recital and Zankel Halls at Carnegie Hall. Born in Moscow to a family of artists, he also studied at the Moscow Central Special Music School, under the auspices of the Moscow State Conservatory.
As a soloist and chamber musician, Giacopuzzi, who hails from Verona Italy, has performed recitals at major festivals and venues throughout the United States and Europe. He is a winner of 14 international piano competitions. He has performed under the direction of world-renowned conductors such as Dian Tchobanov and Robert Wills. He has been invited to serve on competition juries and to give presentations, master classes and concerts throughout the world.
