Sarah returns to the Comox Valley with a new programme exploring some of the fabulous female composers of the classical piano repertoire. Spurred on by enthusiastic responses to past editions of programmes celebrating women, pianist Sarah Hagen continues to delve into the music and stories of some of her favourite forgotten female composers. The 75 minute recital will highlight piano works by 18th and 19th century composers, including Clara Schumann, Cécile Chaminade, Marianne von Martinez, and others.

About Sarah:

Awarded as Artist of the Year by both Ontario Contact (2017) and the BC Touring Council (2015), and mentioned by The Guardian (Charlottetown) as the Best Classical Performance of 2014, pianist Sarah Hagen’s interpretations have been described as "outstandingly inventive" [University of Water- loo Gazette], ”played flawlessly” [ReviewVancouver]. Her extensive touring has taken her across Canada, to Sweden, France, Germany and Italy, and twice to New York City’s Carnegie Hall. Sarah released an album of Goldberg Variations in 2021. Her third album, Women of Note, highlights two forgotten female composers of the 18th century, and garnered the 2021 Music PEI Instrumental Recording of the Year as well as two ECMA nominations. Sarah’s debut solo album, Glass House Dancing, was nominated for Classical Recording of the Year at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards. Her second album, Devoted: Music of Robert & Clara Schumann, features solo piano works and Clara Schumann’s Romances, Opus 22 with violinist Martin Chalifour, concertmaster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In addition to writing wine reviews for her blog, “ARTIST WINES! - Uncorking musician-priced cellar secrets,” Sarah tours a one-woman musical comedy show called “Perk up, pianist!” of which the Edmonton Journal wrote, “Her comic timing is as solid as her musical meter.”
