KEY PIANISTS is a concert series at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, presented by Terry Eder.

KEY PIANISTS' mission is to bring to the New York stage and audiences pianists deserving of a stage at Carnegie Hall for their intelligence, sensitivity and insight. These are musicians who have had substantial performance experience throughout their career and who have mature musicianship to offer music lovers.  Artists will be invited to perform the repertoire in which they specialize or have a particular affinity.

Season three was received with accolades. George Grella's review of Cecile Licad's recital for New York Classical Review, entitled "Cecile Licad brings dazzling keyboard arsenal to Liszt, American composers," stated that "Licad's playing of all three composers was superb," and that "Licad's musicianship was impressive all evening." Frank Daykin of New York Concert Review said of Misha and Cipa Dichter's recital: "The Dichters' flair for dialogue between the two instruments was in full display, aided by the clever and faithful arrangement" (speaking of Bernstein's transcription for two pianos of Aaron Copland's El Salon Mexico). Of Mr. Dichter's solo performances, Mr. Daykin said that "he would then do something so angelic that it brought tears to my eyes."

Our second season featuring Ann Schein, Terry Eder, and Sara Davis Buechner concluded with rave reviews for all three recitals. The links below will take you to them.
