Pianist Shai Wosner will be taking over the Sirius XM Symphony Hall Facebook page starting today, Tuesday, January 24.

Over the next few months, he will be regular contributor to the SiriusXM's Classical Music Channel's Facebook. Fans of the page will be able to submit questions to Mr. Wosner, as well as see his own interviews with a range of classical musicians, from fellow pianists Marc-André Hamelin, Orion Weiss, and Anna Polonsky to conductor Tito Muñoz, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, and more. Mr. Wosner will also share personal stories, photos, podcasts, and videos that offer a look into his life and career. Videos will also include "Pianists Not in Cars, Not Getting Coffee," a parody of the Jerry Seinfeld show "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee." He was recently featured on the Symphony Hall page rehearsing a Mozart concerto via Facebook Live stream.

Pianist Shai Wosner has attracted international recognition for his exceptional artistry, musical integrity, and insightful performances of a broad repertoire-from Beethoven and Schubert to the music of today. A frequent recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician, Mr. Wosner is known for imaginative programming that links music of the past and present.

Described as a "Schubertian of unfaltering authority and character" by Gramophone, Mr. Wosner launches a new solo recital series this season, Schubert: The Great Sonatas, which focuses on the composer's last six piano sonatas. He also maintains his recent focus on Beethoven through performances of the last three piano concertos (Nos. 3, 4, and 5, "Emperor") in the U.S. and abroad. Mr. Wosner also performs the Berg Chamber Concerto in Germany this season with the Kammerakademie Potsdam. For a full listing of concert dates, visit Shai Wosner's website.
