About the Artist
Jorge Bolet began his piano studies at the age of five in his native Cuba, at nine played his first public recital, and at ten appeared as soloist with the Havana Sinfonica. A scholarship took him to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where he performed as soloist at age sixteen in Carnegie Hall with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra under Fritz Reiner. After graduation with top honors from Curtis in 1934, Bolet went to Europe for further study and while there began his concert activities.
In the ensuing years he has excelled in every medium open to the pianist's art. On the concert stage both as recitalist and as soloist with orchestras, he has won acclaim throughout North and South America and Western Europe, as well as in the Far East and even behind the Iron Curtain. He has become known to an even wider public through his recordings and radio and television appearances, and he added still more followers when he provided the sound track for the film biography of com?poservirtuoso Franz Liszt.
Tonight's recital is Mr. Bolet's fourth appearance in Ann Arbor. He performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with The Philadelphia Orchestra at the 1952 May Festival, followed by recitals in 1954 and 1968.
We have been recently informed that the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, originally scheduled for a concert in the Choral Union Series on March 3, has cancelled its entire American tour this season. While we deeply regret this fact, we are happy to announce a replacement of high caliber, another orchestra from Czechoslovakia which made its first tour of the United States in 1973.
