About the Artist
As a critically acclaimed rccitalist, as a soloist with the world's major symphonies, and as an award-winning recording artist, Murray Perahia has captivated audiences with the lyric beauty and virtuosity of his playing. Born in the Bronx in 1947, Mr. Perahia began piano studies at the age of five with Jcanette Haicn and remained with her until he entered the Mannes College of Music at the age of seventeen. Rather than majoring in piano, he studied composition and conducting while at the same time taking private piano lessons from Mieczyslaw Horszowski and Artur Balsam. He started performing recitals in New York as a result of winning the Young Concert Artists Award and the Kosciusko Chopin Prize. At the age of nineteen he participated in the Marlboro Music Festival and served as Rudolf Serkin's teaching assistant at The Curtis Institute for one year. In 1968 he made his Carnegie Hall debut with Alexander Schneider conducting, and in the following years performed with members of the Budapest, Guarneri, and Galimir String Quartets, and on national "Music from Marlboro" tours. In 1972, at the age of twenty-five, the pianist made his successful New York Philharmonic debut under the late Istvan Kertesz, fortifying an already strong career. That same year he received international attention as the first American to win the Leeds International Piano Competition, establishing him as one of the leading pianists before the public today. His highly acclaimed London recital debut won him "an astonishing reception of the kind usually reserved for Rubinstein." In 1975 he won further recognition for his artistic achievement when he was selected as the first recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize.
In 1972 Mr. Perahia signed an exclusive recording contract with CBS Masterworks, the first pianist in ten years to be granted such a contract. Since that time he has been building a discography of consistently outstanding solo and concert recordings, which have been honored with a staggering list of awards and nominations. He has received two Grammy nominations; two Record World awards for "Best Keyboard Recording of the Year" in 1980 and 1981; his recordings of Schumann's Symphonic Etudes and Papillons was hailed by High Fidelity as "among the best piano recordings ever made"; and he has won Europe's prestigious Edison Prize twice for two recordings in his ongoing project to perform and conduct the complete Mozart Piano Concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra.
Murray Perahia has presented recitals throughout the world as well as appearing as a soloist with nearly every major orchestra in this country and in Europe, with such conductors as Abbado, Bernstein, de Waart, Giulini, Haitink, Jochum, Lcinsdorf, Maazel, Ozawa, Previn, Rostropovich, and Solti.
Mr. Perahia has given three recitals in the Musical Society's "Debut and Encore" Series in Rackham Auditorium; this evening he appears on Hill Auditorium's stage for the first time.
