New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has recognized violinist Tessa Lark as one of eleven Emerging Artists for 2020 and the recipient of its prestigious Hunt Family Award. In a November 14 news release announcing the awards, Lark is cited by Lincoln Center Artistic Director Jane Moss as “a brilliant musical force who defies categorization. On and offstage, she conveys expressive warmth and grounded authenticity. She engages effortlessly with audiences.”

Lark is the sole individual to be nominated as an Emerging Artist this year by the center itself rather than one of its many discipline-specific resident organizations such the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, Film at Lincoln Center, Juilliard School, and New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. She will make her Lincoln Center recital debut May 10, 2020, on the Great Performers Series.

For his recital debut with Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival on July 24, 2019, pianist-composer Michael Brown performed for a rapt audience at the Kaplan Penthouse, offering a late-night program consisting of Mendelssohn's "Variations Sérieuses," his own "Folk Variations," and a set of Beethoven variations thematically linked to that composer's "Eroica" Symphony, which the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra had performed just minutes earlier in Lincoln Center's Geffen Hall. Here's what New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini had to say:

"Since the final movement of the 'Eroica' Symphony, which many in his audience had just heard, is an epic set of variations, Mr. Brown began with a colorful account of Mendelssohn's impetuous 'Variations Sérieuses,' then played his own flinty yet playfully pointillist 'Folk Variations.' Nodding to the orchestra's earlier program, he ended his recital with a fearless performance of Beethoven's momumental 'Eroica' Variations, in which Beethoven tried out themes later used in the symphony."
