Thomas Pandolfi is one of the leading pianists of our time, hailed as a “phenomenon.” He began his career early on while at The Juilliard School where the young prodigy caught the influential ear of Vladimir Horowitz, who would become his mentor, and legendary composer, Morton Gould. Since then, he has been an audience favorite, selling out the world’s most prestigious stages, including Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, The Strathmore and The Kennedy Center.

“Master of both the grand gesture and the sensual line… Pandolfi's large-scale pianism seemed under tight control yet in no way muted the passion of his performance… projected with an exquisite sense of lyrical gesture." — The Washington Post

 

“Exhilarating… a rare mix of technical accuracy and cool confidence.” — DC Metro Arts
