On July 16 at 3pm pianist Matthew Lorenz will give a solo recital at Hinsdale Union Church. Lorenz will be concluding the summer tour of his program “Chopin & Rachmaninoff Live” which features several Chopin classics alongside the rarely-heard complete 13 Preludes op. 32 by Rachmaninoff.
A native of Fargo, North Dakota, Lorenz has grown in demand as a classical performer since moving to Chicago in 2019, studying with renown pianists Edward Auer, Junghwa Moon Auer, and Adam Neiman at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. Now performing around the Midwest, Lorenz is also established in genres like cabaret and as well maintains a position on the piano faculty at the New Music School, Chicago’s premier academy for pre-college music.
Once labeled as a “dynamite performer” with “meticulous” attention to “big-picture” ideas, Lorenz’s live performances have been praised for their “electrifying” energy and massive scope. You can preview some sneak-peek recordings, bio, and more at his website! mlorenzmusic.squarespace.com
