Nakamatsu takes difficult piece on thrilling coaster ride
Concert Review by Warren Gerds • Green Bay Press Gazette • February 12, 2010

Shining review from the Green Bay Press Gazette’s Warren Gerds:

“Wow. It’s rare that a winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition appears in Green Bay, so hearing one is … wow.

Jon Nakamatsu, an American who won the famed competition in 1997, has advanced to greater performance levels.

He took on reputedly one of the most difficult concertos in standard repertoire Tuesday night in a Brown County Civic Music Association series concert with the Philharmonia of the Nations in Ralph Holter Auditorium at Green Bay West High School.”
