Dr. Martin David Jones performs a solo piano recital featuring the music of Claude Debussy. Debussy was a master of French musical Impressionism. The program will include Debussy's suites "Pour le Piano", "Estampes", Images No.1" and his "Joyous Isle".
Dr. Jones enjoys a multi-faceted career as a composer, conductor, and international prize-winning pianist and recording artist. As a pianist he has been a featured performer in recital and with orchestra throughout the United States. His appearances at major musical centers include Lincoln Center and Merkin Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Dame Myra Hess Recital Series in Chicago, Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston, South Carolina, Spivey Hall in Atlanta, and Gindi Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Dr. Jones has received critical acclaim for his concerts. The Indianapolis News described him as having "absolutely knocked the socks off Balakirev's `Islamey' widely considered one of the most difficult works ever written for the piano." And the Washington Post called his "technique meticulous, his musicianship powerful and his inclinations poetic."
