The Daniel Saidenberg Faculty Recital Series and Juilliard’s new season opens with a recital by organist Paul Jacobs, chair of Juilliard’s Organ Department, on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 8 PM in Paul Hall performing solo organ works by J.S. Bach and Max Reger. The program includes: Reger’s Fantasy and Fugue on Bach, Op. 46; J.S. Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 539 (the “Fiddle” fugue); and Reger’s Introduction, Variations, and Fugue on an Original Theme, Op. 73.
An eloquent champion of his instrument, arguing that the organ for too long has been excluded from the mainstream of classical music, Paul Jacobs is known for his imaginative interpretations and charismatic stage presence. He has also been an important influence in the revival of symphonic music featuring the organ. The first and only organist ever to have won a Grammy Award (in 20011 for Messiaen’s challenging Livre du Saint-Sacrement), Mr. Jacobs combines a probing intellect and extraordinary technical skills with a repertoire that spans the gamut of music written for his instrument, both old and new. He has transfixed audiences, colleagues, and critics with landmark performances of the complete works for solo organ by J.S. Bach and Messiaen, as well as a vast array of other composers. A fierce advocate for new music, he has premiered the works of Samuel Adler, Mason Bates, Michael Daugherty, Wayne Oquin, Stephen Paulus, and Christopher Theofanidis, among others.
Violinist Catherine Cho and pianist Robert McDonald perform an all-Beethoven program on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 8 PM in Paul Hall. The program features Sonata No. 1 in D Major, Op. 12, No. 1; Sonata No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96; and Sonata No. 7 in C Minor, Op. 30, No. 2.

She has toured Israel with the Haifa Symphony and was the soloist on a concert tour of Japan and Korea with the Juilliard Orchestra. As a recitalist and chamber musician, Ms. Cho has performed on the prestigious stages of Alice Tully Hall with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Casals Hall in Tokyo as a member of the Casals Hall Ensemble, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and on Ravinia’s “Rising Stars” series in Chicago. A winner of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Ms. Cho has won top prizes at several international competitions. She is a member of the violin faculty at Juilliard.
American pianist Robert McDonald has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia both as a solo recitalist, and for many years, as recital partner to Isaac Stern and other distinguished instrumentalists. He has appeared with major orchestras in the United States and Europe. As a chamber musician, he has performed with the Juilliard, American, Takács, Muir, Brentano, St. Lawrence, Vermeer, Borromeo, and Shanghai string quartets, as well as with Musicians from Marlboro. In addition, he has given concerts for the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, the Chicago Chamber Musicians, NHK, and BBC television worldwide. His discography includes recordings for Sony Classical, Vox, Bridge, Musical Heritage Society, ASV, and CRI. He is a member of the piano faculties of Juilliard and the Curtis Institute of Music.
