Next to the photo of legendary pianist Menahem Pressler at the Steinway Gallery of Michigan hangs a photo of his student, Steinway Artist Pauline Martin. Pressler’s profound artistic influence on countless pianists over his long life was immeasurable. This solo recital by concert and collaborative pianist Pauline Martin honors the memory of her lifelong mentor with gratitude for his pivotal role in establishing Chamber Soloists of Detroit in 2012.

Follow this link to learn more about Menahem Pressler’s extraordinary life and the profound artistic impact he made on artists, students and audiences around the world.

Program:
Concerto in the Italian Style, BWV 971 – J.S. Bach
Sonatine – Maurice Ravel
Sonata No. 31 in A flat, Op. 110 – Ludwig van Beethoven
Sonata No. 2 in g minor, Op. 22 – Robert Schumann
Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante, op. 22 – Frédéric Chopin

It is so heartwarming to know that Menahem Pressler is remembered and honored in such a beautiful way by his student Pauline Martin. He was a passionate teacher and gave his last lesson just one week before he passed away aged 99 in May. He used to say his students were like his children. He cared deeply about their well-being. We are lucky that we have his many recordings to listen to but his spirit lives on in a special way through his students as they continue to teach and play and today I am sure he will somehow proudly be listening to Pauline. I thank her for remembering her teacher with such a beautiful program.” – Annabelle Weidenfeld
