About the Artist
French pianist Philippe Entremont has been a major concert artist in America since 19S3 when he made a triumphant recital debut in Washington, D.C., followed the next day with an orchestra appearance in Carnegie Hall that, according to the New York Times, "brought down the house." Over the years his performances in recital and with the great orchestras of the world have won him a wide and enthusiastic following on six continents. He has played with Leopold Stokowski, Igor Stravinsky, Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy, Jean Martinon, Darius Milhaud, and others. He is a fourtime winner of France's highest recording honor, the Grand Prix du Disque, and the recipient of the Netherlands' highly coveted Edison Award, and of a Grammy nomination. In New York he has performed regularly with the Musica Aeterna Orchestra, the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, and in Lincoln Center's "Great Performers" Series. In March, 197S, he played the Great Performers 100th Birthday Salute to Maurice Ravel.
Mr. Entremont has performed three times in Ann Arbor--with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy in the 1964 May Festival, and recitals in 196S and 1971.
