Piano Concert: Joanne Polk & Inesa Sinkevych

Pianist Joanne Polk was catapulted into the public eye with her recordings of the complete piano works of American composer Amy Beach (1867-1944) on the Arabesque Recordings label. Ms. Polk recording, Completely Clara: Lieder by Clara Wieck Schumann was selected as a “Best of the Year” recording by The Seattle Times and was featured on "Performance Today" on New York Public Radio. Her CD titled Songs of Amy Beach, recorded with baritone Patrick Mason for Bridge Records, was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 2014, Ms. Polk’s CD titled The Flatterer, solo piano music of French Romantic composer Cécile Chaminade, was released on the Steinway & Sons Label. Joanne Polk was named as one of Musical America’s Top 30 Professionals of the Year in an article titled, “Profiles in Courage.” In February 2020, Ms. Polk’s CD Louise Farrenc Etudes and Variations for Solo Piano, was released on the Steinway & Sons Label. Ms. Polk is a member of the piano faculty of Manhattan School of Music, and is an exclusive Steinway artist.
