Antonii Baryshevskyi: Setting the Keys on Fire

On his annual trek to Germany for a two-week composition retreat, WMPAC Artistic Director John Zirkle heard Baryshevski play and almost immediately began work getting the Visa for the Ukrainian pianist to come to WMPAC. “He has a fire and infectious enthusiasm for the piano that is synonymous with youth,” says Zirkle, “together with the incredible touch of the mature artist.” Put simply, Zirkle says, Baryshevskyi is “a world treasure.” Prepare for a concert like none other on March 1.
