Evan Mitchell
June 8, 2016An "intoxicating", "pristine", "seminal recording""This is a new standard for all to consider." Rave reviews for our new recording are coming in -- Tom Knific's review in the most recent edition of Bass World is copied below! {And for anyone literate in Dutch, more great coverage here (translation forthcoming, we hope!): http://www.opusklassiek.nl/cd-recensies/cd-aw/marciniak01.htm} From Bass World April/May 2016: "A fabulous new DVD/CD package has recently been released on the Red Mark label featuring the Richard Dubugnon Sonata; Lu Shang’s Fantasy Higgs Boson; Frank Proto’s Sonata No. 3; and Chiel Meijering’s Ultimate Workout. In these world premiere recordings, Szymon Marciniak offers electrifying performances throughout. The ensemble with pianist Evan Mitchell is pristine and symbiotic. For those fortunate to be in attendance, this project essentially represents their ISB 2015 recital at Fort Collins. This release extends that privilege to all, and it not to be missed. Richard Dubugnon’s Sonata, 2009, is a beautifully engaging opening to the recording. A composer and bassist, Dubugnon has already provided the bass world with a number of gems. His ever-rising recognition in the world of composition should be celebrated. Marciniak and Mitchell achieve many sublime moments. The Scherzino explores the kalimba-like possibilities of right-over-left-hand pizzicato. The honesty of the Lied movement will stop you in your tracks. It is an engaging performance and seminal recording. The Fantasy Higgs Boson for Double Bass and Piano, by Chinese composer Lu Shang, won grand prize in the solo division of the 2014 ISB Composition Competition. Its gorgeous crystalline textures and forward leaning momentum subtlety reference the composer’s roots. As the title reflects, it is more a work of our time. The international premiere and recording of this work could not be presented with more integrity than exhibited by these artists. The world waited 50 years for Frank Proto’s second bass sonata after he composed Sonata 1963 as a student at the Manhattan School of Music, a work that remains captivating for its synthesis of styles and relative accessibility. Sonata 1963 has become a global bass repertoire centerpiece. Now, only two years after the premiere of Sonata No. 2, Proto gives us Sonata No. 3, composed for Szymon Marciniak. With perspective, it is a remarkable thing to witness Proto’s return to this format after creating so much music in so many idioms and incarnations. While playfulness and stylistic nimbleness are ever present, there is also an intensity and distillation of vocabulary and emotional intent permeating Sonata No. 3. The intoxicating performances of Marciniak and Mitchell must be a delight to the composer. After half a century, Frank Proto is still writing towards our future. And with Szymon Marciniak, he has again found the ultimate nexus for his art. This is a new standard for all to consider. But wait! There is a bonus track, Dutch composer Chiel Meijering’s The Ultimate Workout. Please seek it out, your reward will be great! And seek out this recording." – Review by Tom Knific
March 1, 2016CD release!!Our new recording is out!! Visit www.Liben.com for information on ordering the DVD/CD combo pack, and check my Facebook page for a video excerpt. Thanks to the composers of these exciting new pieces for double bass and piano -- Richard Dubugnon, Shang Lu, Chiel Meijiring, and most of all Frank Proto, whose new sonata is the featured work on the recording, and who edited and produced it.
February 14, 2016Rach 2Check out the TCU School of Music YouTube channel for the live webcast of my performance this Friday night at 7 central -- second movement of Rachmaninoff's 2nd concerto...with organ accompaniment! Looking forward to playing with the Tim Shewmaker Philharmonic.
January 28, 2016New recording, upcoming concerts, Touring RosterThe CD/DVD I recorded with double bassist Szymon Marciniak is ~almost~ ready! Copies are being pressed as we speak, and the score of Frank Proto's Third Sonata (one of the world premieres we recorded) has just been published. Check www.liben.com in the coming weeks for more info. Coming up next are three more shows with Mount Vernon Music. Our first concert in Mount Vernon was a success, and we'll play the same program (Milhaud Suite, Schumann Fairy Tales, Brahms G minor Quartet) twice in Dallas on 2/7 and 2/8, and in a slightly different format at Texas A&M Commerce (2/1). I'll make a second appearance in Commerce in between all those dates, in a recital with clarinet superstar Corrado Giuffredi on February 6th. I've also been informed my spot on the TCA Texas Touring Roster will be renewed for another two-year cycle. This program provides grants to nonprofit presenters who hire me, so I look forward to another two years of concerts throughout the state!
January 10, 20162016Finally posted some pictures from our concert trip to Shanghai (with Gary Karr and Yuan Xiong Lu)! We had a full house at the Shanghai Concert Hall for our radio-broadcast and TV-recorded concert, which was streamed to many thousands live online. What a fun show -- beautiful hall, enthusiastic fans, press conference beforehand plus an appearance at the Shanghai Conservatory the following day. Very fortunate to have closed out last year on a high note! Coming up in the next few weeks are a recorded rehearsal of a new musical theatre work-in-progress, four chamber concerts with Mount Vernon Music, and a recital with clarinet superstar Corrado Giuffredi at Texas A&M--Commerce... check "calendar" or social media for details!
November 20, 2015Recital tomorrow!Come out to TCU for my second doctoral recital tomorrow! On the program are works by Bach, Ravel and Schubert. 7pm in PepsiCo Hall. Monday night's concert with double bass legend Gary Karr was a huge success, and we're looking forward to playing the same program in Shanghai next month!
October 19, 2015SU Recital and fall updatesIf you're in the Austin area and available this Saturday night, I'd love to see you at my guest recital at Southwestern University! Details and repertoire on the Calendar page... I had a great time last month kicking off the fall season with the Fort Worth Symphony, playing principal keyboard in Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances and Adam Schoenberg's American Symphony. With everything else underway and booked solid through the end of the year, I'm already looking ahead to early 2016 -- several weeks covering parts for the Dallas Symphony; a recital with former Boston Symphony principal flutist Leone Buyse in Fort Worth; an exciting series of four chamber concerts with Mount Vernon Music; a guest chamber concert at Union University (Jackson, TN) and more! The audio from my recording sessions over the summer with bassist Szymon Marciniak is DONE. Now on to editing video and the finishing touches -- hoping to post about its release by late February or March! In the meantime, more double bass fun: I'll be playing a concert with Gary Karr, arguably the father of the modern double bass recital, and TCU Professor Yuan Xiong Lu, on November 16th. (Keep an eye out for the live online stream!) We're then playing the same program on December 20th at Shanghai Concert Hall, my second performance in that city in the last year and a half. I'll post articles etc.. in the lead-up to the concert as they appear!
July 17, 2015RecordingJust back from a week of recording in Cincinnati with double bassist Szymon Marciniak. We put in a few really solid sessions, and had a great time hanging out with composer Frank Proto. I'm really looking forward to the CD/DVD release early next year!
June 23, 2015E75 reviewCheck out Theater Jones for a great review of our concert from last Friday!click here for more info
June 9, 2015May wrap-upI've just come to the end of a busy and exciting stretch, with a couple of DSO concerts (Bernstein Kaddish Symphony), the Mendelssohn D minor trio with a couple of wonderful players on the Spectrum series, and most recently a week of bass madness at the ISB convention. Playing again with Szymon Marciniak was a treat (world premieres of works by Frank Proto and Shang Lu, plus a likely US premiere of Richard Dubugnon's sonata), plus exciting collaboration with everyone from a tango specialist to a longtime LA Phil player to an avant-garde performance artist. Coming up on the 19th is an exciting project combining a contemporary photography exhibition with music of the Second Viennese School (details on my calendar)!
April 3, 2015ISB etcMany thanks to everyone who came out to hear me at Merkin Hall last week and in the Spectrum chamber concert at First Jefferson Unitarian Church this past Monday! A couple of updates: This June I'll be premiering two massive new works for double bass and piano, the Fantasy Higgs Boson by Shang Lu, and a new sonata by Frank Proto, arguably the most prolific composer ever for that instrument. This will mark the second time in as many years I've gotten to collaborate with the outstanding bassist Szymon Marciniak, this time at the International Society of Bassists convention in Fort Collins, Colorado. Before that, though, I'm playing loads of violin repertoire around Fort Worth (two Brahms sonatas, Franck, Beethoven...) and in May have my next gig with the Dallas Symphony, in their Bernstein Kaddish Symphony performances. Spring/summer is filling up fast, and next season's engagements are going up on the calendar as they come in...
January 20, 2015Great concerts in DallasDone with two weekends performing in varied roles with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, most recently as a soloist in John Adams' Grand Pianola Music! Many thanks to the DSO and Maestro Case Scaglione.

January 7, 2015Dallas premiere of Liquid InterfaceI'm making a last-minute substitution for a staff pianist in the Dallas Symphony, performing the Dallas premiere of Mason Bates' 2007 work Liquid Interface, a four-movement symphony on the theme of water in its various states. Yesterday's rehearsal with Maestro Jaap van Zweden was a blast! My solo debut with the orchestra is next weekend in John Adams' Grand Pianola music -- details on my calendar.

June 4, 2014Successful debutsI'm back from Shanghai, where I had a blast playing at the Oriental Art Center for a crowd of roughly 1,500, and a month before that I was thrilled to have an enthusiatic full house on hand for my Myra Hess Series debut in Chicago! Thanks to the International usic Fund Chicago, and to everyone in China, for making these happen.
June 4, 2014TCA Touring RosterI am honored to announce that the Texas Commission on the Arts has added me to its Texas Touring Roster for 2014-16!! You can read their press release here: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Evan Mitchell (201) 704-2644, evan.william.mitchell@gmail.com EVAN MITCHELL ACCEPTED FOR NEW TEXAS COMMISSION ON THE ARTS TEXAS TOURING ROSTER Austin, TX – June 4, 2014 – 3LDQLVW Evan Mitchell is pleased to announce he has been approved for inclusion on the new Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) Texas Touring Roster. The Texas Touring Roster features some of the state’s best artistic talent and is designed to ensure that all Texans may enjoy events and performances by these artists in their local communities. Mitchell is one of 150 artists and arts companies selected for inclusion on the roster. “Artists on the Texas Touring Roster travel to communities across the state and perform in a variety of venues,” said TCA executive director Gary Gibbs. “In addition to performances, they may also conduct workshops, master classes, residencies, lecture-demonstrations or arts education components as a way to engage community residents. We are proud to offer the citizens of Texas access to such high-quality artistic talent.” Artists on the roster must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. The Texas Commission on the Arts does not provide direct funds to artists in the Texas Touring Roster. Instead, TCA provides grants to arts presenters, schools, libraries, theaters, and other nonprofits and government units throughout Texas to help with the cost of bringing in companies and artists from the roster. Presenters may apply through TCA’s Arts Respond Performance Support grant category for a portion of the artistic fees for artists from the Texas Touring Roster. Acceptance onto the Texas Touring Roster benefits artists like Mitchell by giving them a powerful marketing tool. Access to grant funds combined with the fact that Texas Touring Roster artists have been deemed the best in their field by a panel of statewide experts makes these artists attractive to a variety of presenters, including schools, festivals, theaters and other venues. Artists on the Texas Touring Roster range from individual performing and visual artists to large performing arts companies. They represent artistic disciplines including music, visual art, dance, theater, storytelling, literary art and folk art. Options are diverse and range from ballet to bluegrass, animation to poetry, jazz to children’s theater, and everything in between. More information on Evan Mitchell is available at www.evanmitchell.net. The complete Texas Touring Roster, as well as information on the Arts Respond Performance Support grant category, is available online at www.arts.texas.gov. About the Texas Commission on the Arts The mission of the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is to advance our state economically and culturally by investing in a creative Texas. TCA supports a diverse and innovative arts community in Texas, throughout the nation, and internationally, by providing resources to enhance economic development, arts education, cultural tourism and artist sustainability initiatives.

Lauded for his “impassioned and vigorous” playing (Pianomania), pianist Evan Mitchell has established himself as a bold and versatile artist. Last season, Evan’s richly varied schedule of well over 50 appearances included solo recitals, concerti, chamber music, and performances as an orchestral keyboardist. His performances have been deemed “incredibly beautiful” (Fanfare), “amazing” (Fort Worth Weekly), and “no less than stunning” (Lima News). Evan’s recording of Claudio Santoro’s Sonata No. 4, “Fantasia” (1957) is featured on the 2012 CD release, “Piano de Pampa y Jungla: A Collection of Latin American Piano Music,” and a recently recorded DVD and CD with double bassist Szymon Marciniak will be released early 2016. Evan’s performances have been heard in New York’s Steinway Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and in nine countries on four continents. Recent highlights include a recital for Chicago’s prestigious Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, plus appearances at Merkin Concert Hall (NYC) and several major venues in Shanghai (Oriental Art Center, Shanghai Concert Hall, Shanghai Conservatory). Evan has soloed in concerti with such ensembles as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Lima Symphony Orchestra, and the Victoria Symphony; worked with conductors including Jaap van Zweden, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Darryl One, Crafton Beck, Richard McKay, and Case Scaglione; and collaborated in recital with major artists including clarinetist Corrado Giuffredi, flutist Leone Buyse, double bassist Gary Karr, plus members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the symphony orchestras of Cleveland and Rio de Janeiro (OSB). A passionate and articulate advocate for the arts, Evan looks constantly for ways to reach new audiences, and to inspire in others a love for music. The Texas Commission on the Arts recently named Evan to its Texas Touring Roster, a program that provides grants to nonprofit presenters in order to fund performances by the state’s finest musicians, poets, visual artists, and more. In the 2015-16 season, Evan returns for a fourth year as a featured artist for Musical Awakenings®, the signature educational outreach program of the Van Cliburn Foundation, which exposes more than 30,000 public school students annually to classical music. Other performance affiliations include Avant Chamber Ballet and DFW-based Open Classical, whose motto – “Music that’s dressed down, not dumbed down” – summarizes a mission to present classical music in less formal, unconventional spaces. Evan’s enthusiasm for the music of our time is reflected in recent world premieres of works by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Frank Proto, Shang Lu, and Stacy Garrop, several of which have been recorded and will soon be released commercially. Among other honors, Evan has captured first prize in the Kingsville International Young Performers Competition, Five Towns Competition, PianoTexas International Festival Concerto Competition, and the Twelfth Annual Competition in the Performance of Music from Spain and Latin America, in which he was also awarded the Jacques Klein Prize for Best Performance of a Brazilian Solo Piano Work. He won Fifth Prize at the 2012 World Piano Competition, and has received additional recognition in the Schmidbauer International Young Artists Competition, Music Teachers National Association Competition, and the BNDES International Piano Competition. Evan won a special audience award in the final concert of the 2009 PianoFest series (Freiburg, Germany), and was featured in the Rising Stars concert of the 2008 Toronto Summer Music Festival. Most recently, he gave a recital at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City as a quarterfinalist in the 2015 Honens International Piano Competition. A native of Montclair, New Jersey, Evan holds degrees from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and is currently working toward his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Texas Christian University, where he studies with John Owings. His principal teachers have included Arnaldo Cohen and the late José Feghali, and he has worked with numerous artist-teachers including Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky, Barry Douglas, and Ann Schein. Evan also recently joined the faculty of Tarrant County College.
