About the Artist
Santiago Rodriguez was born in Cuba in 1952 and began studying the piano at the age of five. In 1960 his parents sent him to the United States to avoid the political upheaval at that time, and it was in a Louisiana orphanage where his pianistic talents were first discovered and nurtured. He later studied at the Loyola School of Musicin New Orleans, the University ofTexas, and atjuilliard where he was a scholarship student of Adele Marcus.
Mr. Rodriguez made his orchestral debut at age nine with the New Orleans Philharmonic and subsequently performed several times with that ensemble, as well as the St. Louis Symphony and Baltimore Symphony. He has played over 100 concerts and recitals under the sponsorship of the Leventritt Foundation, and last month made two major New York appearances at Alice Tully Hall and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These recitals followed a highly successful London orchestral debut in Queen Elizabeth Hall in November.
Mr. Rodriguez earned acclaim for his performances in the 1981 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, where he was awarded the Silver Medal and also received a special prize for the best performance of Leonard Bernstein's Touches, a piece written specially for the competition. The pianist's most recent honor came in November when he was awarded the Avcry Fisher Career Grant. This $7,500 award, recommended by a board of 121 members, is designed to assist talented instrumentalists already on their way to successful concert careers, to be used for development in various aspects of an artist's career.
