Haskell Small Concert

  
 

“Technical prowess became poetry.  Small wove a spell…sheer musicality…each note a liquid jewel."The Washington Post

 

“Recommended as that special treat, good new music well played.”  - Fanfare Magazine

 

“More musicians should do what Haskell Small does: he plays what he likes and brings it to life, sometimes quietly, sometimes somewhat more boisterously, putting his heart and soul into it.”  - Lucid Culture Performance review

 

Over the course of his career, Small's contemplative nature has drawn him to music that seeks a spiritual quietude that approaches silence. His ongoing series of compositions, performances and recordings, "Journeys in Silence", reflects this interest. Small regularly tours the United States, Europe and Japan, programming his own compositions as well as works by other composers that share this aesthetic, performing in monasteries, churches and galleries as well as more conventional concert venues.

 

HASKELL SMALL
Pianist and Composer

Composer and pianist Haskell Small has been praised for the exquisite blend of sound and silence in his compositions and for his prodigious technique and subtle touch at the keyboard. His discography of over a dozen recordings and his frequent national and international tours have firmly established Small's stellar artistic reputation around the world.

Highlights of Small's international performance career include engagements at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center and Spoleto USA. His acclaimed artistry has spread further through his active YouTube channel and other videos, which have received millions of views. In addition to his online videos, Small was featured on the nationally-broadcast PBS special “A Celebration of the Piano.”
