In recent years pianist Alexander Schimpf has risen to prominence by winning a series of competitions including the 2008 German Music Competition - a distinction no pianist had earned for 14 years - First Prize at the 2009 International Beethoven Competition in Vienna and emerging as the first German pianist ever to win First Prize at the 2011 Cleveland International Piano Competition. His final round performance at Severance Hall with the renowned Cleveland Orchestra was given a standing ovation and additionally honored with the Audience Favorite Prize. Since winning these notable awards, Mr. Schimpf's career has gained momentum with regular appearances at important music centers around the world. He makes his Las Vegas debut in March, 2014.
Conductor David Lockington was an audience favorite last year conducting the Las Vegas Philharmonic's season finale concert, "Celestial Bodies" featuring Wagner's Prelude and Liebstod from Tristan und Isolde and Holst's The Planets. He returns to lead this concert which will also feature Sibelius's Second Symphony.
This concert is part of the Las Vegas Philharmonic's Masterworks Series.
