FALMOUTH, MA—Pianist Sara Daneshpour will perform at Highfield Hall & Gardens on Saturday, September 7, from 5:00-7:00 pm. The concert is part of the Simon Music Series at Highfield.
Daneshpour moved to Philadelphia to study with Leon Fleisher at the Curtis Institute of Music when she was 14. Since then, she’s turned years of study and one electrifying performance after another into a high-voltage career. She’s performed in the world’s greatest venues… from Carnegie Hall in New York City and the Kennedy Center in Washington DC to the Great Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. Critics have praised her blazing technique, expressivity, and endless imagination.
Her first performance at Highfield followed her stunning 3rd prize win at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv in 2017. She was also the 2014 prizewinner at the Seoul International Music Competition in Seoul, Korea and 2013 Laureate of the ProLiance Energy Classical Fellowship Awards of the American Pianists Association.
Daneshpour has also been featured nationwide on 160 public radio stations, including WGBH in Boston.
Highlights of past seasons included performances with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, and with Maestro Stephen Simon and the Simon Sinfonietta on Cape Cod and at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. She has also given solo recitals at the Musee d'Orsay and the Salle Cortot in Paris.
