Classical pianist Michelle Schumann has made the rounds. And when I say that, I mean she’s performed all over the world at some very prestigious festivals and has had some very notable teachers (ever heard of Emanuel Ax?). Schumann is perhaps most notable for her relationship to contemporary music, she goes out of her way to program new music by up and coming composers, putting them back to back with the classics. Even though she’s stylistically very eclectic, she always plays with elegance and sensitivity, even during the more fire moments in the music. Michelle Schumann stopped by Studio 1A to tickle the ivories for us, listen below!
