Biography

“Malcolm Bilson (b. October 24, 1935) is an American pianist specializing in performance on the fortepiano, which is the 18th century version of the piano. Bilson teaches at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., where he is the Frederick J. Whiton Professor of Music.

Bilson is known for his series of recordings (on the Archiv label) of the piano concertos of Mozart, in collaboration with John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists. He has also recorded the complete Mozart and Schubert piano sonatas for Hungaroton. In collaboration with six of his former students Bilson has produced a complete recording, on Claves Records, of the piano sonatas of Beethoven. These recordings use a set of nine restored or replica pianos, each of a type contemporaneous with the sonata being performed. He also created a DVD, “Knowing the Score,” which questions many of the basic concepts of musical performance taught in conservatories and music schools around the world.”
