Pianist Sarah Hagen returns for the second of the In Concert series of classical music performances at the Trinity Presbyterian Church on Oct. 16.

Classical Sundays continue

For this second performance of the “In Concert” series, Hagen’s programme includes Chopin’s exquisite Opus 28 Preludes and Beethoven’s “Les Adieux” Sonata

Classical music on Sunday afternoons continues with pianist Sarah Hagen on Oct. 16.

“A rarity of musical excellence, technical ease and tonal purity,” Hagen is a sought-after soloist and chamber musician, performing in concerts across Canada as well as in the United States, France, Italy, Germany and Sweden. Her interpretations have been described as “outstandingly inventive,” performed with “infinite skill.”

Hagen is an avid collaborator, reveling in the friendships and stimulation that abound in chamber music. While Hagen travels regularly for performances in Europe, she also delights in playing with some of Canada’s premier musicians, including Trio Accord and the Emily Carr String Quartet.

Highlights of the past season include appearing as soloist with both the Victoria Symphony and the Symphony Orchestra of the Pacific, as well as a Swedish tour with the Hagen Trio.

Hagen has been heard on Swedish Radio 2, CBC Radio One and Two, numerous radio stations throughout North America, and has appeared on Bravo Television. Her solo album, Glass House Dancing, was nominated for Classical Recording of the Year at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards.

For this second performance of the “In Concert” series, Hagen’s programme includes Chopin’s exquisite Opus 28 Preludes and Beethoven’s “Les Adieux” Sonata.

The concert takes place at 2 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 145 Simms Road. Individual tickets are $20 or $10 for students.  For more information and to order tickets, visit www.sarahhagen.com or email info@sarahhagen.com
