Evan Mitchell
Thursday, April 28, 2022New academic position - movingI am tremendously excited and very grateful to announce that I have accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Florida School of Music! I can’t wait to get to work this August with world-class colleagues and wonderful students.

Fort Worth has been a great home for these past 11 years, and I will miss my students, colleagues, friends, and community here. But, I know I will be back for concerts and other visits, and my family and I are excited for this new adventure!

Wednesday, January 05, 2022Happy New Year!The return to "normal" concerts over the past few months has been so encouraging; I've even been able to get back into the public schools with Cliburn in the Classroom for the first time since February 2020.

Coming up - a series of MVM performances featuring an enormous variety of chamber music by mostly female composers, some living (Valerie Coleman, Jennifer Higdon) and some active in the 19th and early 20th centuries (Fanny Mendelssohn, Melanie Bonis, and Dora Pejacevic). Later in the semester, I return to the Mesquite Symphony to have my first go at Rach 2!

Friday, December 03, 2021"Polar Express" - Cliburn in the CommunityOur latest series of Cliburn in the Community shows is off to a fast start - we had about 500 people turn out to hear "The Polar Express" in Burnett Park on Wednesday! In the show, my friend and colleague Sara Doan reads the classic children's book with musical accompaniment, and joins me for four-hand numbers (as well as a few solos I play) in between paragraphs of text.

Details on additional performances are available at Cliburn.org, through the FW Public Library, and on my social media channels.

Monday, November 01, 2021Virginia recital/teaching mini-tourI fly out this afternoon for a brief trip to Radford University and Virginia Tech - looking forward to working with students at both institutions and playing my solo recital program "Without Words: Piano Music Inspired by the Human Voice" at Radford tomorrow evening! Livestream link to come.

Monday, October 04, 2021Rhapsody in BlueThe theme of this season at Mount Vernon Music is "Ways Forward" - after the better part of two years plagued by the pandemic, social divisions, and other difficulties. For our concerts this month - "Reflection: What Makes Us Strong" - we will perform an all-American program, including trios by Chick Corea and Kenji Bunch, some fierce fiddling in Mason Bates' "Ford's Farm", and Gershwin's popular Rhapsody in Blue, accompanied by string quartet.

Tuesday, September 28, 2021Steinway AwardTomorrow I head to NYC for a brief visit to be inducted into the Steinway & Sons Teacher Hall of Fame! It's a huge honor to be recognized among some really eminent colleagues, and the tour Thursday of the Steinway factory should be fascinating.

Tuesday, August 31, 2021World Premiere - Voices of Change seriesIt's always an honor to be trusted with the premiere of a new work, and I'll be doing just that in "Swallowing Fire" by Peter Askim, a piano quartet (with clarinet, violin, and cello) on the Voices of Change series in Dallas next month!

Wednesday, June 09, 2021Cliburn Summer SeriesThis month and in early July I'll be joining soprano Corrie Donovan for a series of four performances presented by the Cliburn. Classical and musical theater vocal numbers, plus solo piano music by Schubert-Liszt, Gottschalk, and others.

Monday, May 03, 2021Clara Schumann TrioI'm excited to be playing the Piano Trio in G minor by Clara Schumann with Dallas Symphony members violinist Maria Schleuning and cellist Jolyon Pegis this Sunday! The concert streams live from Collora Piano in Dallas, and we'll be joined on the second half by violinist and violist Mark and Ute Miller for the Shostakovich Quintet.

March 28, 2021FW OperaI'm excited to step in and finish this (very unusual) season with the Resident Artists of the Fort Worth Opera while their principal pianist is on maternity leave. We've got a few recitals slated throughout the month of May - looking forward to the work with them!

Tuesday, March 16, 2021Chopin ConcertoOur upcoming Mount Vernon Music project is something I've looked forward to for a while: the Chopin F minor concerto with string quintet accompaniment. Thanks to UT Arlington allowing us to livestream from Irons Recital Hall, we'll get a real-time performance of our entire program, "Bel Canto and the Piano". We've also recorded most of the program (including the first movement of the concerto) to share with the students and faculty of Texas A&M Commerce in their weekly Convocation hour, and will post it publicly later.

Wednesday, January 20, 2021Art Music/U. of MemphisIt was great to play for the third time earlier this month with cellist Gayane Manasjan and violinist Maria Schleuning, and to meet and work with Met Orchestra violist Desiree Elsevier! We did the Schumann Piano Quartet, and they recorded a trio by Irving Fine, which was broadcast on YouTube for the Art Music series.

I'm also looking forward to a trip later this month to the University of Memphis, where I'll play a 2- and 4-hand recital with my friend Dr. Jonathan Tsay and give a masterclass for the piano students there.

Wednesday, November 11, 2020Blanco Performing ArtsPlaying for a live audience this weekend will be a highlight of my year (at least since February!). I'll be on the Blanco Performing Arts series with Jonathan Tsay, playing 2- and 4- hand piano music.

Monday, October 19, 2020"Fall Color"/Halloween/Haydn & DvorakA surprisingly busy few weeks coming up - first an outdoor concert (and later indoor live stream) for Mount Vernon Music. The program, "Fall Color", features the I. Lachner Trio in B-flat (with violin and viola) and the Goetz Quintet (Trout instrumentation -- with double bass). After that it's an outdoor Halloween-themed show spanning classical, musical theater, and pop, presented by the Cliburn, and a recording of Haydn and Dvorak trios in Dallas for the Art Music series.

Thursday, September 10, 2020Inbox Concert Sunday afternoonIt has been gratifying to delve into a handful of really wonderful pieces and record them at home. This Sunday Mount Vernon Music will present these recent recordings as a Facebook premiere Inbox Concert: the Bach G minor English Suite, Variations on Shalom Chaverim by Adolphus Hailstork, and a chorale prelude by Brahms, arranged for piano by Busoni.

Wednesday, June 17, 2020MVM Inbox ConcertsInspired by Yo Yo Ma's "Songs of Comfort", home-recorded performances posted online throughout the global shutdown, our next Inbox Concert from Mount Vernon Music goes live this Saturday morning at 10 (Central). I'm playing soothing Romantic favorites by Grieg, Mendelssohn, and Clara Schumann. Check the Mount Vernon Music Facebook Page to watch Saturday, or to see it archived later.
Tuesday, June 09, 2020Art Music Concert -- online editionDespite not being able to perform for a live audience, we got together -- masks and all! -- to rehearse and record a lovely chamber program for the Art Music Series in Dallas. The video is now up, and features the Beethoven "Spring" Sonata and Mendelssohn D minor trio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdG_U2GoPDg&t=7s
Wednesday, May 06, 2020Cliburn KidsI've missed getting into the public schools with Cliburn in the Classroom during the pandemic, but am recording at home for some virtual four- and six-hands pieces to be posted by Cliburn Kids.

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!
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 14, 2015Mailing ListThere's now a signup form for my email list on the "Contact" page -- sign up to stay in the loop about upcoming concerts and other developments!

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.

December 16, 2014DSOCheck my calendar for info on concerts with the Dallas Symphony next month. And thanks to all who came out to hear "Themes" this Sunday!

December 1, 20142015 dates and moreConcert info for early next year is on the way -- keep an eye on my calendar for more.

37 programs down, 44 to go -- nearing the midway point of a busy year with Cliburn Musical Awakenings!

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.

Lauded for his “impassioned and vigorous” playing (Pianomania), pianist Evan Mitchell has established himself as a bold and versatile artist. His richly varied schedule of nearly 100 performances per year includes solo recitals, concerti, chamber music, outreach, and orchestral keyboard work. Dr. Mitchell’s performances have been deemed “incredibly beautiful” (Fanfare), “amazing” (Fort Worth Weekly), and “no less than stunning” (Lima News). A new recording of world premieres with bassist Szymon Marciniak is earning rave reviews; most recently, Bass World called their performances “intoxicating,” deeming this “a seminal recording.” He is also featured on the 2012 release “Piano de Pampa y Jungla: A Collection of Latin American Piano Music.”

Evan Mitchell’s performances have been heard in New York’s Steinway Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, in ten countries on four continents, radio broadcast on WFMT (Chicago), WFHB (Bloomington), Classic FM 94.7 (Shanghai), and televised in North Texas. Highlights include debuts for the prestigious Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts (Chicago), at Merkin Concert Hall (NYC), and at several major venues in Shanghai. Dr. Mitchell has soloed in concerti with such ensembles as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Lima Symphony Orchestra, and Victoria Symphony; worked with conductors including Jaap van Zweden, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Case Scaglione, Darryl One, Crafton Beck, and David Effron; and collaborated in recital with major artists including clarinetists Corrado Giuffredi and Michael Webster, flutists Leone Buyse and Jim Walker, double bassist Gary Karr, plus members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the symphony orchestras of Cleveland and Rio de Janeiro (OSB). Upcoming engagements include concerti by Gershwin, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff, and a solo recital tour featuring a program of works by Florence Price, Johannes Brahms, Missy Mazzoli, Claude Debussy, and Franz Schubert.

A fierce advocate for the arts, Evan Mitchell looks constantly for ways to reach new audiences, and to inspire in others a love for music. He was a featured artist for eight years on the Texas Touring Roster, a program through with the Texas Commission on the Arts provides grants to nonprofit presenters in order to fund performances by the state’s finest musicians, poets, visual artists, and more. Dr. Mitchell performed more than 300 concerts over ten years for Cliburn in the Classroom, the signature educational outreach program of the Cliburn, which exposes more than 30,000 public school students annually to live music. He serves as a trustee on the Board of – and performs frequently with – Mount Vernon Music, a nonprofit that not only brings first-rate chamber concerts to rural east Texas but also awards generous scholarships to music students in those communities each year. Other past and current performance affiliations include Avant Chamber Ballet, the chamber series Transfigured Nights & Art Music, Voices of Change, 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. Dr. Mitchell’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 released commercially.

In demand as a collaborative artist, Dr. Mitchell is a frequent guest on numerous chamber music series, on university campuses in recital with visiting and faculty artists, and as a staff collaborator at conferences and competitions. He has been a regular presence at the International Society of Bassists conventions, and has been engaged by the International Women’s Brass Conference, Myrna Brown Flute Competition, and Cliburn Junior International Piano Competition, among others.

Evan Mitchell has given masterclasses and guest artist recitals at the University of Memphis, Radford University, Southwestern University, Virginia Tech, Western Kentucky University, and other institutions. Dr. Mitchell has been a featured presenter at the MTNA National Conference (upcoming 2023), College Music Society South Central Regional Conference, and for various local teachers’ associations. He has been a juror for the Dallas International Piano Competition, Texas Music Teachers Association Solo Competition, and other local and regional contests. Dr. Mitchell has taught at Tarrant County College and served as President of the Fort Worth Music Teachers Association. He currently serves as Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Florida School of Music.

Evan Mitchell 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 in Cincinnati, and most recently gave a recital at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City as a quarterfinalist in the Honens International Piano Competition.

A native of Montclair, New Jersey, Evan Mitchell holds degrees from the Indiana University-Bloomington Jacobs School of Music (BM, MM) and Texas Christian University (DMA). His principal teachers have included John Owings, Arnaldo Cohen and the late José Feghali, and he has worked with renowned artist-teachers including Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky, Barry Douglas, and Ann Schein. He credits his early mentors Dr. Thomas Parente and Dr. Brandt Fredriksen with pointing the way toward a fulfilling life in music.
