Isaiah J. Thompson is a jazz pianist, bandleader, and composer who began studying classical piano at the age of five and quickly branched out to other styles, including jazz. Since graduating with an MM and BM from The Juilliard School, Mr. Thompson has performed with major artists, including Christian McBride, Steve Turre, John Pizzarelli, and Buster Williams.

Jazz Club: Emmet Cohen Trio
Leading his trio with a command that belies his relative youth, Emmet Cohen is one of the hottest jazz pianists and composers to come on the scene in the past five years. Listen for traditional jazz sounds with a thoroughly modern flavor.

Mr. Cohen has appeared at the Gilmore Festival, as well as the Newport, Monterey, North Sea, Bern, Edinburgh, Detroit, and Jerusalem Jazz festivals, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia. His signature undertaking is the "Masters Legacy Series," a set of recordings and interviews honoring legendary jazz musicians that will allow musicians of multiple generations to share the unwritten folklore of America's unique musical idiom.

Ingrid Fliter
2006 Gilmore Artist Ingrid Fliter brings her warmth and passion to a deeply personal program of works by Beethoven and Chopin - composers whose works are intimately connected to her artistry. Ms. Fliter, who has been a part of almost every Gilmore Festival since 2006, and is beloved by audiences worldwide, gained widespread acclaim at the 2000 Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw, where she was a medalist. Her pearly touch and poetic approach to the piano are closely linked to the music of Chopin (especially in the Nocturnes), and her dramatic flair resonates with these picturesque sonatas by Beethoven.
Rising Stars Series: Evren Ozel
Live stream
Evren Ozel presents a moving program highlighted by Bach’s Partita in G Major, BWV 829. One of six such suites Bach published as “Clavier-Übung,” or pieces for keyboard practice, the work is an epic journey through a universe of emotions. Mr. Ozel also performs two works by Frédéric Chopin, demonstrating his noted skill with the Romantic composer’s works.

Mr. Ozel was awarded second prize, as well as special prizes for best mazurkas and best polonaise, at the 2020 National Chopin Competition of the United States. He has performed with orchestras such as The Cleveland Orchestra, Jacksonville Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, and the Boston Pops.

A classically-trained pianist and composer, Mr. Diehl has made an indelible mark on the jazz world over the last 15 years.

Mr. Zaleski was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, as well as a finalist for the 2011 American Pianists Association Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz. Since then, he has become one of the most in-demand young pianists on the New York jazz scene, playing with the likes of Ravi Coltrane, Lage Lund, and Ari Hoenig. His new quintet album, “The Question,” was released earlier this year.

Rising Stars Series: Avery Gagliano
Live stream
Avery Gagliano displays her affinity for Chopin in a program that includes the composer’s Mazurkas, Op. 56. Chopin wrote more than 50 mazurkas – or dance miniatures – during his lifetime; this was written somewhat later in his life and is hallmarked by a lively middle section bracketed by a wistful opening and a pensive close.

Ms. Gagliano, winner of first prize and best concerto prize at the 2020 National Chopin Competition of the United States, is a young artist who captures audiences with her sensitivity, emotional depth, and musical expression. She has collaborated with several symphonies in the US and is an avid chamber musician. During the 2020-21 season, she will make her recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Ms. Gagliano currently resides in Philadelphia and studies at the Curtis Institute of Music with Gary Graffman and Robert McDonald.
