Sara Davis Buechner, the celebrated American pianist, will mark the 25th anniversary of her New York debut with an exciting recital at Merkin Concert Hall. The program features music of Bach-Busoni, Mozart and Martinu, as well as rare works of Miklós Rózsa, Japanese composer Kouji Taku, and delightful foxtrot arrangements by Ms. Buechner herself. Twenty-five years ago the New York Times hailed Ms. Buechner, as a musician of "intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess." Since that time she has soloed with every major orchestra in North America in an astonishing repertoire of over 100 different Piano Concertos; recorded a number of extraordinary CDs; performed innovative original programs incorporating dance and film; commissioned and premiered important new music; and acquired a reputation as one of America's most formidable and accomplished keyboard artists. Her personal story is no less compelling, a journey of integrity and courage that has been chronicled by major international press such as Paris Match and Macleans. In Japan she is a much-heralded honorary member of the Osaka Hanshin Tigers baseball team.
