SPMF Piano Competition

Competition Jury

Constantine Finehouse has performed extensively in the US and abroad, including in Salzburg, Trieste, London, Ghent, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Odessa. His 2009 solo release, "Backwards Glance," interweaves works by Brahms and Richard Beaudoin. “The Bolcom Project”, made in collaboration with his American Double partner, violinist Philip Ficsor, included an Albany Records two-CD album and a national tour with concerts in Boston, New York, Denver, Santa Barbara, Spokane and at Yale University. Fanfare praised the recording as “indispensable to any serious collector with an interest in later 20th-century duo repertoire for violin and piano.” The American and European premieres of William Bolcom's Horn Trio, in collaboration with Ficsor and Steven Gross took place in the summer and fall of 2018. The work, commissioned by the group, was recorded at the Martinu Hall in Prague and released on Naxos Records in December 2021. Finehouse's recording of Bolcom’s piano solo works for Naxos saw its world-wide launch in December 2017.  His new album "Rhythm and the Borrowed Past" with violinist, Daniel Kurganov,  was released on Orchid Classics in November 2021,  following their 2018 release "Between the Notes" on Spice Classics.  Finehouse latest album with Sebastian Baverstam, duo's second release, features sonatas by Brahms and Shostakovich. During recent concert seasons Finehouse has performed at the Mozarteum (Salzburg), Miaskovsky Hall (Moscow Conservatory), Merkin Recital Hall, Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall) and Jordan Hall (Boston), as well as at Harvard, Yale, and Emory universities, and St. Vincent's and Elmira colleges, among others. With degrees from Juilliard and Yale, Finehouse teaches at New England Conservatory, and serves as Visiting Artist/Faculty at Westmont College, CA.
