The Distinguished Performer Concert Series at SMU Meadows School of the Arts opens its 2017-18 season with a rare solo recital by world-renowned concert pianist, recording artist, and Joel Estes Tate Professor Joaquín Achúcarro.

The all-Chopin concert will feature six works by the 19th-century Romantic composer, including his “Prelude,” “Op. 45 in C-sharp minor,” “Fantasia Impromptu,” “Nocturne, Op. Posth. in C-sharp minor,” “Barcarolle, Op. 60; Polonaise,” “Op. 53 in A-flat major,” and, after an intermission, “24 Preludes, Op. 28.” Following the concert, Achúcarro will fly to London to record these Chopin works for a new CD.

The concert is dedicated to the memory of the late Jeanne Roach Johnson (1932-2017), a Dallas civic leader, investor and philanthropist who was a longtime supporter of SMU and of the Meadows School. A lifelong music lover, she gave several major gifts to establish endowment funds and initiatives for Meadows piano programs.
