The Malloy Lecture in the Arts

October 2005

In 2005, the “Genius of Mozart” took center stage at the year’s Malloy Lecture in the Arts featuring acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell and pianist Frederic Chiu.

Bell is an American Grammy award-winning violinist and conductor who made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1985, at age 17, with the St. Louis Symphony. He has since performed with many of the world’s major orchestras and conductors.

Chiu is a Chinese American classical concert pianist and Westport resident. During his formative years, he won numerous piano competitions, including the Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Piano Competition and the Music Teachers National Association  Competition, both in 1984. He was awarded the American Pianists Association Fellowship (formerly known as the Beethoven Foundation) in 1985. He was given the Petschek Award by the Juilliard School in 1994, which led to a recital in Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.
