Ana Glig and Mónika Woods connect through their shared passion for Franz Liszt, their interest in classical music built from folk music material, and for unearthing classical music's delightfully quirky pieces.
They will be playing:
Praised for her ability to "capture hearts" by Musical America, Georgian American pianist Ana Glig has been presented as a soloist and a chamber musician at venues such as Steinway Hall. Prizewinner of the Tel-Hai International Piano Concerto Competition (Israel) and Georgian Musician-Performers Competition, Ana received the Alfred Cortot Award for the interpretation of Romantic music at the Tbilisi International Piano Competition. Ana's first musical impressions were of the Georgian folk song "Suliko," which inspired and influenced her early passion for music.
“Chosen by the clarinet”, Transylvanian born Hungarian clarinetist, and symphony soloist winner,
Mónika Woods, was noted for her “tender and insightful playing” and “exquisite musicianship” in a review by Keith Powers, which also stated “her soft passages sounded like whispers, and when she played with force,
it was with complete confidence.” Monika was featured as a guest artist by Cape Symphony and became the 2013 New England Concerto Competition first prize winner.
She is founder of Open Mic Classical, promoting classical music.
