NPR’s From the Top LIVE

On June 8, 2019, Texas State International Piano Festival (TSIPF), celebrating its 10th year, will bring one of country’s most entertaining classical music programs to San Marcos, Texas —a live taping of the NPR hit program From the Top at the new Performing Arts Center at Texas State University. The program will feature young TSIPF participants from all over the world in a celebration of the energy of America’s kids and the power of classical music. We are thrilled by this opportunity to showcase our exceptional musicians on a national broadcast and to provide an inspiring and engaging classical music concert for an audience of young people and families right here in San Marcos, Texas.

For over a decade, From the Top has featured thousands of young musicians. Each week, 700,000 listeners tune in to hear middle and high school students play with astonishing depth, style, and enthusiasm. In interviews and in pre-produced audio portraits, they share stories about balancing life as a kid in America with their dedication to classical music. They are witty, insightful, and sometimes goofy, but they never fail to inspire. The program is heard in San Marc os on both KMFA (Austin) and KPAC (San Antonio).

From the Top builds a community experience in every city it visits and provides an Arts Leadership program for the performers on the show. From the Top and Texas State International Piano Festival will partner to encourage participating young musicians to use their talents to advocate for the arts, teach music to others, raise money for charitable causes, and engage people outside the concert hall.

Lomazov Rackers Piano Duo @ Online broadcast
Jun 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Praised for “demon precision and complete dedication” (Audio Society), the Lomazov/Rackers Piano Duo garnered wide attention as the Second Prize Winners of the Sixth Biennial Ellis Duo Piano Competition, the only national competition for piano duo in the United States at that time. Since then, they have performed as recitalists and in concert with orchestras throughout the United States and Europe, including performances at the Kiev International Music Festival, Gina Bachauer International Piano Festival, Indiana University Piano Festival, Seoul International Piano Festival, American Liszt Society Festival, Perugia International Music Festival, Varna International Piano Festival, Moulin d’Andé Arts Festival, Burgos International Music Festival and Infiorata di Genzano, in addition to appearances in every region of the United States. Fanfare praises the duo for “a superb demonstration of piano playing” and American Record Guides writes “the ensemble between Lomazov and Rackers is dead on”.

Lomazov and Rackers are Steinway Artists. As advocates for modern music for piano duo, they have premiered numerous works across the United States, including several compositions written specifically for them. Their broad repertoire ranges from important works by Bach, Brahms, Mozart and Schubert, to wide-ranging performances of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Petrushka, leading one critic to write that the duo “really lit up the audience….demonstrating that nearly 100 years after it was written, this modernist touchstone can still sound modern” (Columbia Free Times).

Marina Lomazov and Joseph RackersPraised as a “diva of the piano” (Salt Lake City Tribune), Marina Lomazov has performed throughout the United States, Europe, South America and China. She has won prizes in the Gina Bachauer, Cleveland, William Kapell and Hilton Head International piano competitions, and was the first pianist to be awarded the Artist Diploma at the Eastman School of Music in nearly two decades. Lauded for “unflappable virtuosity” (American Record Guide), Joseph Rackers has appeared throughout the United States, Bulgaria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ukraine at venues including the Shanghai and Sichuan Conservatories of Music, Dame Myra Hess Concert Series, Banff Center for the Arts and Yantai International Music Festival, among others. He is the recipient of the Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music.
Ms. Lomazov and Mr. Rackers each hold the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance from the Eastman School of Music. Both serve on the artist piano faculty of the University of South Carolina School of Music (Columbia, SC), where they co-direct the Southeastern Piano Festival.
