      EVENT DETAILS
      David Syme

      David Syme was recommended by some of Stocker's long-time subscribers who had to pleasure of seeing him perform and asked that we bring him to our stage! He is an American pianist living in Ireland who has emerged in recent years as a pre-eminent and definitive interpreter of the works of Gershwin for piano and orchestra. Mr. Syme has appeared at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Wigmore Hall, and in major venues in 17 European countries, Canada and Mexico. He has recorded 25 concertos on 19 CD's with such orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonia, the Vienna Symphony and Czech National Symphony. Recent and forthcoming concerto engagements have featured the Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Schumann, Liszt E-Flat, Gershwin and Rachmaninoff 2nd and 3rd with orchestras throughout the U.S. and Europe (a performance of the Rachmaninoff 3rd was heralded by the Arizona Daily Star as "nothing shy of spectacular"). His rendition of the Concerto In F (live in Mexico) is frequently labeled as the premier version of this piece, as described by James North in Fanfare Magazine: "Oscar Levant, Earl Wild, Phillipe Entremont, Andre Previn and Helene Grimaud have made notable recordings of the Gershwin Concerto In F, but if I had to choose one today, it would be a live performance by David Syme with Herrera de la Fuente leading Orquesta Sinfonica de Mineria." Besides his performances in this country, he plays about 25 dates per year in his much-heralded in-home concert series in Ireland, where he is steadily attaining greater acclaim, and which has led to engagements throughout the entire country.
