Asheville Art Museum’s Pianoforte Series

Andrea Adamcova and Pavel Wlosok

Experience the Asheville Art Museum’s Pianoforte Series. The afternoon concerts are held in the intimacy of the galleries and performed by a variety of esteemed pianists. The musical selections of each concert complement the art on exhibition to give each listener a truly sensory experience.

Pianoforte Series sponsor Harry Rowney says, “So much of the early classical piano repertoire was composed for instruments more suitable for performance in salon-like settings, rather than large opera houses or concert halls. What we have tried to do is replicate on an outstanding piano the intimate feeling of a salon—and what better place than a gallery within the Asheville Art Museum. The results to date have exceeded our expectations, and also demonstrate that the museum is a place to experience the performing arts within a visual arts setting.”

The next concert in the series will be held Sunday, Jan. 25, at 3 p.m., and will feature internationally acclaimed artists Andrea Adamcova and Pavel Wlosok. This program will include classical pieces performed by Adamcova and jazz piano performed by Wlosok.

Because Pianoforte concerts have limited seating and always sell out, buying tickets in advance is recommended. Admission is $4 for museum members or $4 plus museum admission for nonmembers. Call 253-3227, ext. 120, to reserve tickets or for more information.
