DUO FEATURED IN MUSIC SERIES FINALE!
March 06, 2019
SOUTHERN PINES - The violinist’s playing was described as “pure poetry” by The Strad. The pianist was hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano.” Together, violinist Benjamin Beilman and pianist Andrew Tyson take musical literature to a whole new level.
On April 8, 2019 at 8 p.m., Beilman and Tyson will present a duo recital at the Sunrise Theater in Southern Pines as the final concert of the Arts Council’s 2018-19 Classical Concert Series, sponsored by Parsec Financial Wealth Management.
Beilman began playing violin at the age of five and went on to study at the Music Institute of Chicago, Curtis Institute of Music and Kronberg Academy.
He garnered worldwide attention following his 2010 wins in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and Montréal International Musical Competition. He went on to receive prestigious accolades including a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, a London Music Masters Award, and an exclusive recording contract with Warner Classics.
Born in Durham, NC, Tyson attended the Curtis Institute of Music, and later earned his Master’s degree and Artist Diploma at The Juilliard School.
A winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in 2011, Tyson was awarded First Prize at the Géza Anda Competition in Zürich in 2015. This victory has resulted in numerous performances throughout Europe under the auspices of the Géza Anda Foundation.
