The NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions welcomes Russian pianist Alexander Kobrin. Kobrin will perform on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8:00 p.m. at the Frederick Loewe Theatre, located at 35 W. 4th St. at Greene St. Subways: N, R (8th St.), 6 (Astor Pl.).

Kobrin’s program will consist of Beethoven’s "Pastorale" Sonata, Op. 28, Brahms’ "Variations on a Theme by R. Schumann,” and R. Schumann “Sonata No. 1”.

"Alexander Kobrin is a remarkable artist who plays with poetry and flawless technique. It is an honor to be able to feature a pianist of his caliber on our stage,” said Marilyn Nonken, professor of music and music education. “I am thrilled to welcome him to the artist faculty at Steinhardt. As a young, yet highlyseasoned musician, our students will truly benefit from his expertise.”

Kobrin comes to NYU Steinhardt from the Schwob School of Music of Columbus State University.
He previously served on the faculty of the Gnessin’s Academy of Music from 2003 to 2010 and since 2006 has been on the faculty of the IKIF at Mannes College of Music.

Since receiving the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Gold Medal at the Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in June 2005, Kobrin has performed at recitals at Bass Hall for the Cliburn Series and for the Washington Performing Arts Society, and debuts at La Roque d'Antheron, Ravinia Festival, Beethoven Easter Festival, Hannover Prize Winners Series, Turner Sims and the Klavier-Festival Ruhr, where critics praise his "interpretative musicianship [and] considerable insight", "elegance, grace and spirit." In addition to his many appearances as a guest artist with orchestras throughout the world, he has also appeared with the New York Philharmonic.
