Possessing “finger-numbing virtuosity and delicately chiseled precision,” pianist Read Gainsford will present the monumental and demanding Douze Études by Claude Debussy. Gainsford, currently on faculty at Florida State University, has performed widely in the USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa as solo recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician. He has made successful solo debuts at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and London’s Wigmore Hall, among others. Known for his insightful introductions from the stage, Gainsford has collaborated with oceanographers, art historians and living artists to bring a fresh new dimension to his performances.
