GOOD NEWS!!!

I'm happy to announce that I've been named to the Virginia Commission for the Arts'

Performing Artist Touring Roster

for the 2023-2024 season!

FRANCESCA HURST

Recognized for her “tender lyricism” (The Washington Post), yet not afraid to shout, swing her foot onto the piano or don fingerless gloves if the music demands it, pianist Francesca Hurst divides her playing evenly between classical and contemporary music. Passionate about connecting with the audience, she loves giving salon-style concerts in small, intimate venues.

DAILY DOSE OF PIANO

 

A little musical medicine, if you will.

 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, I shared 100 piano pieces, one piece each day, to bring some music and beauty into the world.

LISTEN

There's something magical about live performance, those moments that transcend time and space, where the audience experiences the artist becoming one with the music. I strive to create these moments

in all of my performances.

PREMIERES

I love premiering pieces because I get to present brand new music to the world! It's incredibly exciting, and a big responsibility, and I do my best to understand the music and convey its message to the audience. I cherish interacting with composers to expand my comprehension of the music.

As a Contemporary Ensemble fellow of the 2021 Atlantic Music Festival, we premiered over 50 works in the span of 6 weeks!
