Adam Sherkin is a young pianist-composer and Toronto native. This season he has his own 3 performance subscription series showcasing his talents as a performer and composer. On February 27th, Stephanie Chua will perform Sherkin’s Three Preludes for Solo Piano (2012) for our audience.
Sherkin graduated from the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory. He went on to complete his Master of Music degree in composition at the Royal College of Music, London. Several of his compositions received their premieres in the UK during his time there. Upon his return to Canada, he has continued to perform and to compose. Not only has he composed solo piano works, he has pieces for piano and saxophone, piano and piccolo, toy piano, and orchestras.
In late 2012, Sherkin, an associate of the Canadian Music Centre, released his first solo album, As At First, produced by the talented David Jaeger on the Centrediscs label.
We look forward to hearing Chua’s interpretation of this young composer’s work! To read more about Adam, visit his website at http://adamsherkin.com/
