“An extraordinarily imaginative and intelligent pianist who connects deeply with music lovers.” The Seattle Times
With a distinguished career spanning more than four decades, cherished pianist Murray Perahia is celebrated for his “breathtaking drive and imagination” (Los Angeles Times). His wide and varied discography includes a special anniversary boxed set entitled The First 40 Years, and his recording of Brahms’ Händel Variations is considered “one of the most rewarding Brahms recitals currently available” (Financial Times). He has won multiple Grammy and Gramophone Awards, performed and conducted with the world’s most prestigious orchestras and, recently, embarked on an ambitious project to edit the complete Beethoven Sonatas. With his masterful technique and elegant interpretation, Perahia continues “to breathe freshness and distinction into works we’ve heard many times before, but seldom played at this inspired level” (Chicago Tribune).
