On Saturday, Sept. 8, internationally renowned pianist Jack Winerock,
professor of piano at the University of Kansas, will give a solo
recital at 8 p.m. on the Jordan Stage in Sheslow Auditorium. The
recital, which is free and open to the public, will feature works by
Schubert, Ravel and Griffes.

“I have met Professor Winerock at several conferences in recent years,
and I can say that he is not only a world-class artist of extraordinary
refinement and accomplishment, but he is also a tremendously
warm-hearted person,” said Nicholas Roth, Drake assistant professor of
piano. “We are truly fortunate to host Dr. Winerock and I anticipate a
memorable concert on Saturday evening.”

Winerock has received rave reviews from critics at home and abroad. The
New York Times praised him for “A performance of expressive refinement
and rare delicacy.” The Washington Post described him as “Highly
original, individual and tremendously impressive.” The London Times
noted that “His powerful hands and resourceful technique are directed
by a long-sighted view that encompassed the whole work.”
