Known for his passionate artistry and showmanship, Jon Kimura Parker is one of today’s most sought-after pianists. He is well-known as the host of the television series Whole Notes on Bravo! and CBC Radio’s Up and Coming. A true Canadian ambassador of music, he is an Officer of The Order of Canada (his country’s highest civilian honor) and is the Artistic Advisor of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. Here, Mr. Parker brings his insightful interpretation to the Chopin Ballades, among the most difficult pieces in the piano repertoire, and to Scenes from a Jade Terrace by fellow Canadian Alexina Louie.
