Julia Hamos will appear with Abigel Kralik on April 16, 2022.

Pianist Julia Hamos combines her American and Hungarian roots with an adventurous spirit to explore the essence of repertoire ranging from Bach to composers living today. Instinctive artistic expression, a forward-thinking attitude, a joyful physical flexibility at the instrument, and an unyielding fascination with the music she plays makes her an artist to watch.

Julia currently studies with Sir Andras Schiff at the Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin and at the Kronberg Academy.
