In his remarks before the recital, Ambassador Hertell congratulated the members of the Dominican private sector present for their support of culture and education, including the Embassy´s programs of English teaching and Fulbright scholarships. I know that those present tonight have supported cultural and educational programs for the Dominican Republic. And as we have found in our country, cultural and educational initiatives work best when both the private and public sector come together to support these endeavors.

Extractions: Lyn Bronson On a warm Sunday evening, October 10, The Salinas Concert Association launched its 1999-2000 concert season with a bang by presenting Van Cliburn Competition Gold Medal winner, pianist Jon Nakamatsu in a solo recital on the main stage of the Hartnell College theater. With a highly dramatic backdrop depicting the afterglow of a New Mexico sky and the pianist illuminated by a brilliant spotlight in a darkened hall, there was a touch of Las Vegas showbiz about the event, but when it came to the playing it was all genuine, no nonsense music making. A capacity audience was there to enjoy the event, and, as it turned out, they were not to be disappointed. The program for the evening consisted of solo works by Bach, John Field and Chopin. Looking supremely elegant in his concert tails (two sets of custom-made, full dress tails from Neiman-Marcus were part of his Gold Medal award at the 1997 Van Cliburn Competition), Nakamatsu projects an air of self-confidence in his demeanor that is echoed in his music making. He is always in control and the music pours forth effortlessly from his fingers.

Extractions: Pianist Jon Nakamatsu in Recital Steinway Society The Bay Area Pianist Jon Nakamatsu by David Beech The internationally celebrated Bay Area pianist Jon Nakamatsu made a welcome return visit to Le Petit Trianon, San Jose for the Steinway Society The Bay Area, filling the 360-seat hall on both Saturday, January 3 and Sunday, January 4, 2004. Although his first appearance in the hall years ago had seen him placed second in the Societys Young Artists Competition, he went on, of course, to win the Gold Medal at the 1997 Van Cliburn competition with exceptional performances of classical, romantic and modern works. The concert under review here found him in excellent form, with only a slight regret that there was no modern music in the program, which was limited to the period between about 1800 and 1860. Nakamatsu has recently been advocating the sonatas of Joseph Wölfl (1773-1812), having recorded four of them, and he began his recital with the E major sonata, Op. 33 No.3. The opening
