Rising Stars Series: Dominic Cheli
Live stream
Dominic Cheli performs Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” sonata, one of the most thrilling and powerful works ever composed for the piano.

Mr. Cheli made his Carnegie Hall recital debut during the 2019-20 season and recently recorded his second CD, featuring works by Liszt and Schubert, on the Naxos label. He has performed with orchestras across the US and abroad and debuted at several major festivals.
