Tatiana Shustova wins competition with Liszt performance
Tatiana Shustova, who recently became a member of the American Liszt Society, won first place in the American Protégé Romantic Music International Competition. Her performance of the Schubert-Liszt "Erlkönig" was chosen among other recordings she submitted. As a result of the competition, she performed in New York City's Carnegie Weill Recital Hall on November 24th. Tatiana has been a doctoral student of ALS Life Member Ian Hobson at the University of Illinois School of Music, where she recently finished her preliminary exams. Her next major performance will take place in the Krannert Center Foellinger Great Hall on the UI campus, March 14th at 7:30pm. She will be performing works by Scriabin, Barber, Shostakovich, and John Nichols, a doctoral composition major at Illinois. The concert is part of a yearly series entitled, "21st Century Piano Commission Award." The event is open to UI student pianists and composers who submit a new work featuring the piano. It is a competition, and the adjudged best composition is the centerpiece of the program, which is complemented by other piano repertoire taken primarily from the 20th Century. The event is sponsored by local arts benefactors Jana Mason and Richard Anderson.
