Murray Perahia, the first American to win the prestigious Leeds International Pianoforte Competition, is internationally known as a recitalist and soloist with orchestra. Following his victory in the Leeds Competition in 1972, Mr. Perahia made a highly acclaimed London recital debut which "won him an astonishing reception of the kind usually reserved for Rubinstein." (Christian Science Monitor.) In December of that year he became the first pianist signed by Columbia Records to an exclusive contract in almost ten years, and his first recording was selected as best solo piano record of the year by Time Magazine.
Also winner of the Kosciusko Chopin Prize, Mr. Perahia has given recitals in all of the world's major music centers, including Xew York's "Great Performer's Series." He made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1968, and has appeared in the Casals, Edinburgh, and Marlboro Festivals, at Spoleto, and in the Lincoln Center Mozart Festival. In January of 197S he received further recognition for his artistic achievements when he was selected as the first recipient of the Avery Fisher Artist Awards.
Last season, Mr. Perahia made his first tour of Japan, and also made his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic. He has performed with all major American symphony orchestras, including those of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Toronto. He is presently engaged in a continuing recording project to perform and conduct the complete Mozart Piano Concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra.
His deep love of chamber music has greatly expanded his musical horizons, and by the time he was twentysix, he had performed with such distinguished musicians as Pablo Casals, Clifford Curzon, Erica Morini, Peter Pears, Alexander Schneider, and Rudolf Serkin, also serving as Serkin's teaching assistant at the Curtis Institute for one year. Now, at age thirty, Mr. Perahia's remarkable experiences, coupled with his unique lyricism and poetry, place him in the forefront of today's pianists.
