American pianist Thomas Pandolfi will be performing at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Turlock Community Theatre as part of the Turlock Concert Association’s season.
As a cross-over artist Pandolfi’s transcriptions of the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Leonard Bernstein, Marvin Hamlisch, Burt Bacharach and Barry Manilow are in much demand. In 2006, he released his first CD, and since then has recorded ten additional ones, including "Language of Infinity" (Chopin), "Gypsy Passages" (Liszt), "Into the Night with Gershwin", and the Paderewski Piano Concerto recorded in the Czech Republic with The Moravian Philharmonic.
Pandolfi has collaborated with numerous noted conductors and enjoys working with new composers. He gave the world premiere performance in London of the “James Bond Concerto” during the 2010-11 season. He is scheduled to perform the world premiere of “Bohemian Concerto” by British-Argentine composer, Polo Piatti, during the 2019-20 season.
A graduate of The Juilliard School, Pandolfi earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees as a scholarship student. At the moment, he is based in the Washington, D.C. area
