Piano Recital by Panos Karan

Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
New York
United States

Panos Karan was educated at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He made his professional debut at the Southbank Centre at the age of 19. Engagements have included two solo recitals at Weill Recital Halll at Carne- gie Hall, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Hermitage Theatre in St. Petersburg and the Athens Megaron Concert Hall. In 200,7 he presented the complete cycle of the Beethoven concerti in the UK. In 2009, he recorded Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Orion Symphony Orchestra.

“Can music change the world? We believe it can”
is the motto Keys of Change and its founder, Panos Karan, who has already accomplished two symbolic journeys in South America and Japan to make sure it does.

Panos Karan completed the first leg of a 5000-mile Keys of Change musical adventure across the Amazon River in March 2011 and is preparing for his second visit to Ecuador and Peru, to share the world of piano music with indigenous communities.

While at the disaster zone in northeastern Japan, Panos Karan performed for communities affected by the 11 March earthquake and tsunami. He played 11 recitals in 8 days for people living in emergency shelters, schools and temporary housing. “Music can give hope and encouragement in times of the greatest grief, sorrow and despair,” says Panos.
