演出者:

Pianist Cahill Smith has performed in major venues in the United States and abroad, including four performances at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the PolyTheater in Chongqing, China, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s Calderwood Hall in Boston, Cleveland Museum of Art, the Royal Dublin Society’s Concert Hall, the Aspen Music Festival’s Harris Hall, Minneapolis’ Orchestra Hall, Buffalo’s Kleinhan’s Music Hall, and Birmingham’s Alys Stephens Center. Cahill has been featured as a concerto soloist with the National Ukranian Symphony Orchestra in Kiev, the Mongolian Symphony Orchestra in Hohhot, China, the Eastman Philharmonia, the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, the Chattanooga Symphony, the Butler Symphony Orchestra, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra, and others. His live and studio recordings have been broadcast on WQXR, New York’s Classical Music Radio Station, WCRB, Classical Radio Boston, and WSMC, Chattanooga Public Radio.

Cahill gave his first recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall in 2013 with a program dedicated entirely to works of Nikolai Medtner. Two years later, in a review of his 2015 solo recital in the same venue, New York Concert Review wrote, “The entire second half was devoted to a special “cause” of Mr. Smith: the piano music of Nikolai Medtner […]. Here, Mr. Smith was in his element, revealing every twist and turn, every poignant repeat of the cyclic themes, with beautiful shimmering colors I haven’t heard since Gilels played the Sonata reminiscenza in Carnegie Hall in 1980.  Of another performance in 2011, the East Hampton Star wrote, “The unexpected gems of the afternoon were two of Nikolai Medtner’s Vergessene Weisen (‘Forgotten Melodies’), played by Cahill Smith. I was not familiar with these works, but in Mr. Smith’s hands they were absolutely endearing.” Cahill has given recitals and lectures on Medtner’s music at Yale University, the International Medtner Festival in London, UK, and a number of other universities in the United States. In January of 2019, his debut album “Medtner: Forgotten Melodies” was featured as Classical Radio Boston’s “CD of the Week” for its “irresistible lyricism” and “a palpable sense of love – a real affinity for the directness and honesty in Medtner’s music, which goes straight to the heart.”

Cahill completed his Doctorate of Musical Arts at the Eastman School of Music in 2014, where he served as the teaching assistant to Natalya Antonova. At Eastman, Cahill was the inaugural recipient of the Douglas Lowry award for excellence in degree recital performance, won the Eastman Concerto Competition, and was awarded the Prize for Excellence in Teaching as a graduate assistant. Cahill completed his Master’s degree at the University of Michigan with Arthur Greene, and his Bachelor’s at the University of Alabama at Birmingham with Van Cliburn laureate Yakov Kasman. Other piano teachers include Ann Schein, the late Betty Sue Shepherd, Ronald Shinn, and Margaret Moore.

Cahill teaches on the piano faculty at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, where he also serves as Coordinator of the Keyboard Area and Artistic Director for the Lee University International Piano Festival and Competition. He is an active lecturer, competition juror, and masterclass presenter. Cahill is a Yamaha Artist.

She plays frequently with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, the Alabama Symphony, the Greenville Symphony, the Jackson Symphony, and the Oak Ridge Symphony, and chamber programs at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, Lee University, Southern Adventist University, Covenant College, and Austin Peay State University. She also has performed with Intersection Contemporary Music Ensemble in Nashville. Heather has served as principal cellist of the Orford Academy Orchestra in Quebec, Canada, as well as the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra.

『整個下半場專心致力於卡喜爾先生的特別詮釋: NiKolai Medtner的鋼琴音樂[…]。在這裡,卡喜爾先生展現他的長才,在每個曲折迂迴、每個生動、重複的主題顯現出來,帶著美麗耀眼的色彩是我自1980年在卡內基演奏廳聆聽Gilels 演奏Sonata reminiscenza後,未曾在聽過的。』

在2011年另一次的演出後,東罕普敦星報如此寫道: 『下午的演奏兩顆超乎預期的寶石乃是卡喜爾演奏的兩首Nikolai Medtner’s Vergessene Weisen (‘遺忘的旋律’) 我並非熟悉這兩首作品,但是在卡喜爾先生的演奏下顯得非常迷人。』

卡喜爾曾在耶魯大學、英國倫敦國際Medtner 音樂節、與多所美國大學發表關於Medtner 的音樂作品、講座以及鋼琴獨奏會。且在2019年一月份出版第一張鋼琴專輯“Medtner: Forgotten Melodies”。此專輯曾播出於波斯頓古典電台並被評選為『本週最佳專輯』與『 具有無法抵擋的抒情與幾乎可以觸摸的愛的感覺—在Medtner的音樂中直接與坦誠的真實連接,直入人心。  』
