Magdalena Baczewska Live From Music Mountain


Live From Music Mountain presents Polish-born pianist and harpsichordist Magdalena Baczewska, who has enjoyed a multifaceted career as concertizer, educator, recording artist, and speaker. Director of the Music Performance Program and member of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Columbia University in the City of New York, Baczewska has been acclaimed as a “world-class” musician (The American Record Guide), lauded as “eloquent & technically flawless” (The Washington Post) and “highly sophisticated and truly admirable” (The Weekend, New York) in her “taste and admirable sensitivity” (Palm Beach Arts Paper).


For the 91st summer in a row, Music Mountain is once more the favorite place to be at on Sunday afternoons for music fans. The big difference this year is that there is no commute, since the venue at Music Mountain remains closed due to COVID-19. Instead, music lovers worldwide can enjoy Live From Music Mountain from the comfort of their living room by simply visiting the Music Mountain website, Live From Music Mountain includes conversations with leading artists, musical excerpts, and more. Music Mountain invites the public to submit questions for the artists in advance or in real time.


Magdalena Baczewska will perform works for piano, harpsichord and English spinet by J.S. Bach, Chopin, Debussy and Nikolai Kapustin, the Ukrainian composer and pianist who fused jazz and classical forms and passed away on July 2.


Live From Music Mountain continues to explore the work of artists during the time of Covid-19, with an emphasis on the technology that is enabling musicians and audiences to stay connected. On Sunday, Magdalena Baczewska will talk about the Yamaha Disklavier technology she used for her latest album, "Debussy on 5th Avenue," as well as her work on therapeutic applications of music, including MetroNaps’ Energy Pods.
