Internationally known pianist Misha Dichter will present a free, public masterclass Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10:30 a.m. in room 240 of the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus. This class provides Loyola students an exceptional opportunity to perform and receive feedback from a world-class artist in preparation for music careers.

Known as an interpreter of works of the Russian romantic school and the German classical style, Dichter is in the fifth decade of an illustrious career that includes solo recitals and appearances with most of the world’s major orchestras.

In addition to works by Chopin, Mussorgsky, Schubert, Schumann, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky, Dichter’s extensive recording catalogue includes Brahms’ piano concerti with Kurt Masur and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Beethoven’s piano sonatas, the complete Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies, and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with Neville Marriner and the Philharmonia Orchestra, among others.
