Kariné Poghosyan - Concert Pianist - New York
Armenian-American pianist Kariné Poghosyan has been praised for her unique ability to make even the most virtuosic and technical of works tell a story.
Kariné’s most recent concerts include two sold-out recitals at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, the second of which was a CD Release concert of her “Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky” recording on Centaur Records. This recording has since garnered rave reviews, with Gramophone Magazine praising its “masterly textural layering and resounding climaxes,” and the American Record Guide stating that “a more heroic program would be hard to find, and few could play as well as the Armenian-American Poghosyan.”
The renown pianist and WWFM radio host Jed Distler described her performance in the following way, “This is big piano playing, but big in the sense of being in the moment, being present, and totally owning her vitality and imagination.”
Oscar-winning screenwriter Alex Dinelaris said, “Listening to and watching Kariné Poghosyan play fills one with life and energy. The combination of her formidable skill and her unchecked passion is an experience I recommend for anyone who needs to be reminded of the artist and art within themselves.”
The first week of the NYC lockdown, Ms. Poghosyan switched from playing sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall to launching a weekly virtual concert-series on her fan page, with a new program each week. They have since become a beloved tradition, with a loyal world-wide following, even getting shout outs from NY1 & Katie Couric! She was recently featured in a report by the Emmy-winning journalist Rick Rowe on KTBS/ ABC.
Ms. Poghosyan will be returning to Carnegie Hall on October 13 with a solo program celebrating New York, and the composers who have spent time here.
