Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts

By any definition, music moves. Melody, rhythm, and harmony all change, shift, and develop. When an orchestra plays for us, we may notice more than one kind of movement. On the outside, we can hear sounds move as the musicians change their pitches, rhythms, and dynamics. We can see the musicians’ bodies move as they play. On the inside, we may feel our emotions moving and changing in response to the music we hear. Sometimes music might even create a sense of physical movement as sounds become heavier or lighter, rise up or tumble down. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, we will discover how the orchestra moves.

Students grade 3-5 may participate in a year-long preparatory curriculum for FREE — contact Outreach & Education Coordinator Bernie Brink via email for details.

Martina Filjak: piano

February 26
Martina Filjak


One of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years, Martina Filjak is garnering international praise for her poetic passion and technical mastery at the keyboard as well as for her charismatic personality and magnetic stage presence.

Martina Filjak came to international attention by winning the Gold Medal, the 1st prize and the Beethoven prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 2009, which brought her numerous engagements in the United States and internationally. Prior to that, she won 1st prizes at the Maria Canals Piano Competition (Barcelona) and the Viotti Piano Competition (Vercelli), and was a laureate at the Busoni Piano Competition.

Martina Filjak’s latest CD has been released in 2016 on Solo Musica (distributed by Sony Music) with works by Bach, Schumann and Scriabin. Martina Filjak’s debut CD with sonatas by Antonio Soler was released in 2011 under the Naxos label. August 2013 marked the Sony Classical release of her chamber music recording with Jan Vogler and Christian Poltéra. In January 2019 she is going to record her new CD for Hänssler Classic with works by Liszt.

Her most recent conductor collaborations include JoAnn Falletta, Stanislav Kochanovsky, Alexander Shelley, Hans Graf, Markus Poschner, Sebastian Lang–Lessing, Josep Caballé-Domenech, Tito Munoz, Carlos Miguel Prieto and Stefan Sanderling. She is also a passionate chamber musician and frequently collaborates with various ensembles and soloists such as the Szymanowski Quartet, Ensemble Berlin, Dmitry Sinkovsky, Radovan Vlatkovic, Felix Klieser and Tatjana Vassiljeva.

The artist’s extensive repertoire ranges from Bach to Berio and encompasses more than 30 piano concertos. She is dedicated to continuous exploring of piano literature and various concert formats. Performing with orchestra takes the biggest part of her time and she frequently states that she enjoys the interaction and the exchange of energies between so many musicians on stage.

Based in Berlin, Martina speaks seven languages. Fortunately, for an active performer, she loves to travel.
