Every four years, one extraordinary pianist receives the Gilmore Artist Award, the MacArthur “genius” grant of the music world.
The lucky recipient receives $300,000 and a spotlight that can be career transforming. Past Gilmore Artists include Leif Ove Andsnes (1998), Piotr Anderszewski (2002), Ingrid Fliter (2006) and Kirill Gerstein (2010).
The 2014 Gilmore Artist Award will be announced on Wednesday, January 8, and YOU will have the chance to hear the recipient perform that night in an exclusive event presented by WQXR in The Greene Space.
Don’t miss out on your chance to hear this year’s Gilmore Award recipient in his or her first New York appearance as the next Gilmore Artist! Hosted by WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon and APM’s Fred Child.
