Pianist Polly Ferman performs Music of the Americas this Thursday, March 23, in New York City


‘The well-known pianist Polly Ferman played, in a captivating concert, works of Latin American composers.”

                                                                                           La Nacion, Buenos Aires

“It has become Ferman’s mission to acquaint the public with the unfairly neglected music of the Americas.

She is an artist with an endearing attitude toward the compositions which she interprets.  One is given the 

impression that they are her own creations which she longs to expose to the light of the concert hall.

Expose them she does, with a touching humility, fluidity of technique, and richness of sound.”
