Yevgeny Yontov has established himself as one of the most promising Israeli pianists of his generation. Winner and gold medalist of numerous international piano competitions, Yontov moved to the US to study with Boris Berman at Yale, where he received his M.M. and currently is pursuing his D.M.A. In 2018 Yevgeny joined the distinguished piano faculty of BGSU. A founding member of Icarus Quartet, a two piano/two percussion chamber group, Mr. Yontov has performed chamber music in Israel, Europe, Asia, and North and South America, in venues that include Carnegie Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C. As a soloist, Mr. Yontov has performed on stages across Israel, the US, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, and many European countries. Orchestral engagements include numerous orchestras in the US, and all major Israel orchestras, including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Israel Symphony Orchestra, and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. He also performed on Israeli national TV, and recorded for Israeli, US, Portuguese and Spanish radios. Mr. Yontov’s debut CD, “Schubert: Piano Variations,” was released on Naxos Records in 2017, and includes seldom performed piano variations and fragments by Schubert, as well as his relatively newly discovered Grazer Fantasie.

The Zin Quartet: Shostakovich Piano Quintet and Beethoven String Quartet Op. 59 no. 3

Zin Quartet
Sunday, April 14, 3:00 PM
St. Timothy's Episcopal Church
871 E Boundary, Perrysburg

The Quintet for piano and strings in G minor, Op. 57, by Dmitry Shostakovich, was composed in 1940... The quintet is made (somewhat unusually for this chamber genre) of five movements, each of which is in readily accessible populist style, and characterized by clearly etched and powerful melodies. The most substantial section, a fugue, follows a prelude in which the generally public mood of the work begins to be established. After the fugal second movement, there follows a brief, pithy scherzo, and an intermezzo which takes the place of the conventional slow movement, before the work ends with a brilliant finale. Virtuoso scoring and a particularly testing and soloistic piano part continue to make the piano quintet Shostakovich's most frequently played chamber work, perhaps overtaken in popularity only by his String Quartet No. 8."
