Paavali Jumppanen to visit Bucknell Sunday

Event includes masterclass and concert

LEWISBURG — Finnish pianist Paavali Jumppanen will visit Bucknell University Sunday for a series of free events in the Rooke Recital Hall of the Weis Music Building.

Jumppanen will participate in a meet-and-greet at noon, followed by a piano masterclass from 1-3 p.m., where he will be joined by Bucknell music faculty members Barry Hannigan and Sezi Seskir. For details about the masterclass, contact Brenda Ross at bross@bucknell.edu or call (570) 577-1216.

The pianist will perform in concert, “Three Centuries of Piano,” at 4 p.m. in the Rooke Recital Hall. The program will include music by Chopin, Boulez and Kilpio.

Jumppanen first performed in Bucknell’s Weis Center as winner of the Pennsylvania Presenters Prize at the 2000 Young Concert Artists International Competition in New York City, where he was awarded a first prize among others. He has returned to the Bucknell campus several times, performing with the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra and violinist Corey Cerovsek as well as in numerous solo concerts and with several artists as part of a three-week residency.

With Cerovsek, Jumppanen has recorded the complete “Violin Sonatas by Beethoven.” The CD won the Midem prize for best chamber music recording in 2007. Deutsche Grammophon released his recording of the complete “Piano Sonatas of Pierre Boulez” in 2005; it received prizes in France and Germany and earned much critical praise.

Winner of the first prize in Finland’s national Maj Lind Competition in Helsinki at age 19, Jumppanen made his New York concerto debut in 2002 with the New York Chamber Symphony.
