Kicking off our series is flutist Inna Leoni on Tuesday, October 10.  Since her debut as a concerto soloist at the International Autumn Music Festival in Moscow, she  has graced a number of the world’s prestigious stages including the Czech Republic’s Martinu Hall, Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Philharmonic and Bolshoi Halls, Boston’s Jordan Hall, and Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall.

After several years of performing in her native Russia, Ms. Leoni came to the United States to pursue advance professional studies with Loren Lind of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and later with Paula Robison at the New England Conservatory. Ms. Leoni made her Carnegie debut in 2008 to great acclaim. She is a winner of numerous awards and international competitions in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Boston, and New York. Her debut album,The Russian Romantic Flute, was released in 2011 and brought the opportunity to perform an unknown body of Russian flute repertoire at the National Flute Association in North Carolina. The Russian Romantic Flute has received much praise as well as airplay on classical radio stations throughout the United States, England, and Russia.

Her program (subject to change):

Albert Roussel             Joueurs de Flûte, Op. 27 (1924)
