About the Artist
Tedd Joselson began piano studies at the age of five and, by the time he was twenty, had already played with several major orchestras. The turning point in his career was his appearance with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy at the age of twenty-one. As a result of that concert in 1974, Mr. Joselson became the youngest artist in the history of RCA Records to be awarded an exclusive contract. Six months later he returned to the orchestra as guest soloist for concerts in Philadelphia and New York's Lincoln Center, and subsequently had the honor of playing at the Philadelphia Orchestra's 75th Anniversary Concert. Besides many return engage?ments in Philadelphia, the pianist has appeared with other major orchestras, including those in Detroit, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Baltimore, Los Angeles, and Vancouver. In celebration of the Stravinsky Centennial, Mr. Joselson was chosen by the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra as feature performer in a ten-day festival of Russian music. As a recitalist, he has appeared in Lincoln Center's "Great Per?formers" Series and given recitals across the country.
Mr. Joselson's recordings with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy and with the Dallas Symphony under Eduardo Mata have earned acclaim as "Best of the Year" by Time Magazine. "Best of the Month" by Stereo Review, and "Critics Choice" by High Fidelity. He is currently in the process of recording the complete Prokofiev piano sonata cycle and an album of early Mozart piano concertos with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra as conductor-per?former. Next month Mr. Joselson will lead that ensemble in a live performance at Carnegie Hall.
Mr. Joselson marks his Ann Arbor debut with this evening's recital.
