Ann Schein

1953-1956

Washington Times-Herald, Washington, D.C. August, 1953

“Ann Schein, 13-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Schein, is the youngest winner ever to win the Concerto Competition at the National Music Camp at Interlochen, Michigan. Miss Schein will play the 1st movement of the MacDowell d minor concerto next Saturday.”

Washington Evening Star, November, 1955

“Washington has a respectable share of good recitals during the average season, but as superb playing as Ann Schein’s in the Phillips Gallery yesterday is a rare and exhilarating experience. I would venture to predict that her musical future can be a solid, unequivocal sensation.”

Baltimore News and Post, February, 1956

“In the Rachmaninoff Third Concerto, Ann Schein showed power, sensibility and technical control, being in no way baffled by the tremendous cadenza. She played with such spirit and finesse as to prove herself an artist of the utmost promise.”

Baltimore Sun, March, 1956

“A young girl took the creaks out of the Tchaikovsky Concerto last night, infusing this work with fresh charm. Miss Schein gave an interpretation in which bravura and poetic elements were balanced in a mature way.”
