Raj Bhimani Performs Germaine Tailleferre at Bruno Walter Auditorium (Site)

Thursday September 28, 2023, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Germaine Tailleferre was a French composer and the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six. She lived a long life and was prolific as a composer, but today, much of her later music remains less well known and infrequently performed in the U.S. The French music publisher Editions de la Musique Fabrique has started issuing many previously unpublished Tailleferre scores revealing previously hidden facets of her musical language.

Pianist Raj Bhimani was selected by the Tailleferre Estate to serve as ambassador for these newly-available works. He’s presented them in Paris with the family in attendance, has a recording in production, and is pleased now to be bringing them to Tailleferre’s one-time home, New York City, in this concert at the Library for the Performing Arts. This will be the first opportunity to hear these engaging works in the U.S.

Bhimani presents a piano recital of standard repertoire, followed by previously unpublished music by Germaine Tailleferre.

Pianist Raj Bhimani’s concerts are “virtuosic, heartfelt and eloquent,” writes New York Times critic Michael Kimmelman. Time Out NY noted him as being a “gifted and highly expressive pianist.” Performing regularly across North America and Europe, he also makes frequent appearances in India, where the nationally distributed newspaper The Hindu wrote, “Raj Bhimani is a very sensitive piano player, with a predilection for lyrical melody accompanied with rhythmic gracefulness.”
