Stony Brook Student Makes Carnegie Debut

May 5, 2012

Alexandria Le

Alexandria Le, a DMA student in Stony Brook’s Music Department, made her Carnegie Hall debut on Wednesday, April 11, in Weill Recital Hall. The concert was sponsored through Pro Musicis; Le was a winner of its 2011 International Award, which comes with a New York City debut and concert management.

Le shared the concert with pianist Andrew Staupe, a current DMA student at Rice University and co-winner of the Pro Musicis award.

Le performed Beethoven’s Fantasy in G minor, Op. 77, Competing Demands by Ryan Carter (a world premiere), and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. She encored her performance with the “Danza de la moza donosa” from Ginastera’s Danzas Argentinas. Then the two pianists, Le and Staupe, performed a four hands version of Schubert’s Hungarian Melody D. 817.

New York Concert Review Inc. reviewed the concert with high praise:  “With three world premiere pieces and some of the great works in the piano repertoire, it had the makings of a fascinating evening.  Happily, this was the case, as both performers brought brilliance, poetry, and a deep understanding of their respective selections.”

Of Le, the reviewer wrote that she is “a passionate and involved player; she invests herself entirely in her performance.”
