Dr. Charles Hogan
Hailed by Classical Voice North Carolina's William Thomas Walker as a "fine pianist," Hogan's primary training is in piano. His teachers and mentors include Lucien Stark, with whom he studied at the University of Kentucky, and Elisabeth & Eugene Pridonoff, with whom he studied at Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. At Cincinnati, he delivered a lecture on thematic metamorphosis and performance of Franz Liszt's "Dante Sonata." His doctoral project explored the ten solo piano sonatas and the pseudo-tonal serialism of Allen Sapp. His playing has taken him to venues in the southeastern United States and to London.
Charles prides himself in lyrical playing. While always concerned with informed performance style, he believes the ultimate litmus test the ability to communicate, to elevate, and to enchant.
In addition to his solo playing, Charles thoroughly enjoys collaborating with other artists. Among his great joys are French art song and chamber music for piano and strings.
Hogan has enjoyed teaching at Elon University (N.C.), the University of Dayton (Oh.), Earlham College (Ind.), and the University of Kentucky.
