The Virginia Tech School of Performing Arts presents a Master Class with Pianist Barbara Nissman on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech.

Observe as internationally acclaimed pianist Barbara Nissman coaches students in the School of Performing Arts.

Internationally acclaimed pianist and Steinway artist Barbara Nissman connects not only with the music and its composer, but the composer to the listener touching souls in the process. Nissman makes music relevant. Hailed as "one of the last pianists in the grand Romantic tradition of Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Rubinstein," Nissman continues the grand bravura tradition of Romantic pianism.

Nissman's recordings of Prokofiev, Bartók, and Ginastera are considered “definitive,” and she has garnered praise for her series of recordings of 19th-century composers, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Brahms, and also Rachmaninoff. All of her recordings are now available on her new record label, Three Oranges Recordings.

She has performed with the leading orchestras of Europe and America, including the London, Royal, Rotterdam, and Munich philharmonics, and the BBC Symphony; in the U.S., she has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia and Cleveland orchestras, and the Chicago, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and National symphonies, among others. Nissman has worked with some of the major conductors of our time, including Ormandy, Riccardo Muti, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and Leonard Slatkin.


Admission is free and open to the public.

This is a special Music on Mondays performance, co-presented by the School of Performing Arts and the Moss Arts Center.

The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech is located at 330 Turner Street NW in Blacksburg, VA.
