Pianist Paul Maillet to Perform at Hopkins

Paul Maillet, the first Yale Gordon Concerto Competition winner and distinguished artist-faculty member at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, will give a performance titled "Spirituality in Music: Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time" at noon on Wednesday, April 18, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

Maillet and violinist Sheng Tsung Wang, cellist Benjamin Myers, and clarinetist Louis Bianco will perform the work by Olivier Messiaen, which was written in 1941 while he was being held in a Nazi concentration camp.

Maillet holds an artist diploma from the Peabody Institute, where he studied for four years with renowned pianist and teacher Leon Fleisher and for one year with pianist and visiting professor Leonard Shure. In addition to the Gordon Competition win, Maillet has won the La Gesse Foundation national auditions and the Sherman Clay Steinway Piano, Eastman Concerto, Van Cliburn, Leeds, Gina Bachauer, and University of Maryland International Piano competitions. He has performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the San Antonio Symphony, and the Orquesta Sinf˘nica de Chile. Maillet's performances have taken him to Europe, Asia, Latin America, North Africa, Canada, and the United States and he has performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, Musique d'‚t‚ in Toulouse, and the Second Jakarta Festival for the Performing Arts.

This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 35th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. The event is co-sponsored with the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
