22 / 23 SEASON

For Longy’s 2022–2023 event season, we invite you to leave all preconceptions at home.

Musical experiences can have any starting point. Whether born of complex ideas, emotional impulses, or spontaneous inspiration, every music maker begins wherever they are—which is exactly where they need to be.

Just as there’s no right way, no single starting line for becoming a musician, composer, or performer, there’s no one correct entry point for us as the audience. There’s no required reading for experiencing a piece of music, no prerequisite understanding or context to bring with you to a musical experience. You come to it from wherever you are.

In relinquishing our ideas of what a musical experience should be, we open ourselves to receiving and internalizing music in a way that is unique and true to each of us.

Every artist, composer, and musician represented in this season’s program took a different path to arrive at Longy, detours and scenic routes included. We hope the stories on our stages this year inspire you to begin your own new journey, no matter where you start. Allow yourself to begin wherever you are.

When there’s no set path to follow, you become free to begin anywhere.

Alexander Malofeev, piano | Celebrity Series

Wednesday, February 2 2022   |   8:00 pm 10:00 pm

Witness the Boston debut of a Russian piano prodigy being called a “genius” (Corriere della Sera) with “incredible maturity” (Amadeus). Not yet 20 years old, Alexander Malofeev already performs in Europe’s most renowned concert halls and with some of the world’s top orchestras. Malofeev was only 13 years old when he won the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians, the world’s largest competition for young performers. He just keeps getting better, and he’s now holding his own as an adult, sharing his sincere love for the classical repertoire with worldwide audiences. This is a pianist destined for the biggest stages, so don’t miss the chance to experience his talent up-close in the intimacy of Longy’s Pickman Hall.
