|Piano Series featuring Christopher Taylor|
The Boston Globe declared that American pianist Taylor “has emerged as the leading American pianist of his generation.” Taylor took the Bronze Medal in the 1993 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, received an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 1996 and was named an American Pianists’ Association Fellow in 2000.
Pursuing a varied and acclaimed career, Taylor is involved in several
fascinating projects, from the Bach Goldberg Variations performed on a unique dual-manual Steinway, to the complete Messiaen “Vingt Regards sur L’Enfant Jesus,” now in DVD release.
As a soloist he has performed in New York’s Carnegie and Alice Tully halls, in Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center, the Ravinia and Aspen festivals and more. He frequently is in demand for concerto repertoire, from Liszt and Beethoven to Gershwin and Ullman. Taylor is the Paul Collins Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in mathematics.
