Concert Pianist

I am a concert pianist first and foremost. The solo repertoire I am performing or preparing includes J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Beethoven's Piano Sonatas and Diabelli Variations, Debussy's Preludes for Piano, and selections from Rameau, Scarlatti, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Satie, Ravel, Rachmaninov, and Messiaen. Chamber and vocal repertoire is vast and I have covered much of it with great interest. Constantly in my fingers are the Beethoven Sonatas for Violin, for Cello, his Piano Trios, Piano Quartets, as well as Schumann's and Brahms' sonatas, quartets and quintets, and Debussy's and Ravel's chamber music. My concertos of choice include several by Mozart, those of Beethoven, Schumann, and Ravel. As for more modern and contemporary music, I have done a fair amount (including performing over a dozen world premieres by notable composers such as Shulamit Ran), and I find it very rewarding. But I am still passionately committed to the great music of the past, and perhaps once I will have satisfied my urging to cover the musical monuments I grew up listening to, I will commit more of my time to working on full programs of new or newer music. My curiosity also leads me to explore other genres of music, including flamenco, jazz and blues, pop, Indian classical, Persian, Chinese, and Javanese music, and I am always open to learning new idioms. For me, music is music, and I try to know as much about it as I can, in all its facets. 

I am available for performances anywhere in the world, big or small. Each project and opportunity is unique and my goal is to share music as widely as possible. If an opportunity is meaningful, I will do my best to take it.
