World of the Piano
Noted for her musical command, cosmopolitan artistry and visionary independence, Sara Davis Buechner is one of the most original concert pianists of our time. Lauded for her “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess” (The New York Times), “thoughtful artistry in the full service of music” (Washington Post) and “astounding virtuosity” (Philippine Star), Japan’s InTune magazine sums it up: “Buechner has no superior.” She has been awarded top prizes at many of the world’s premier international piano competitions, and was the Bronze Medalist of the 1986 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and Gold Medalist of the 1984 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition in the United States.
