Spotlight banner for Thursdays@Three: Natalia Kazaryan

This week on Thursdays@Three, we welcome pianist Natalia Kazaryan. She has been hailed by The New York Sun for her “prodigious ability” that “immediately established an atmosphere of strength and confidence.” She’ll be performing works by two women composers: Lili Boulanger and Emma Lou Diemer, plus music by Brahms and Chopin, a preview of her upcoming concerts with Portland Piano International.

Tune in at 89.9 FM in Portland or anywhere online via our live player.


Passionate about programming works by female composers, Natalia Kazaryan curated and performed a recital of all women composers at the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., a performance The Washington Post named “one of the best classical concerts of the summer 2019.” She reprised the program for All Classical Portland and continues to expand her series of lecture-recitals showcasing works of female composers, including a recent performance with the National Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the centennial of the 19th amendment (women’s suffrage). She also was recently appointed as a board member of the International Alliance for Women in Music.
