Scott Cuellar, piano

Promising young pianists from around the country are featured in this quarterly series hosted by the UW Keyboard Program.

In reviewing pianist Scott Cuellar’s debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, David LaMarche of the New York Concert Review described his performance as “virtuosic in scope and expression, like a great man of the theater,” and praised his ability to “illuminate both the external structure and the emotional core of the work he plays.”  A doctoral student at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, where he studies with Jon Kimura Parker, Cuellar performs music by Schumann and Scriabin in his Jan. 14 recital.
