Biography

In the more than 30 years he has been performing on the concert stage, American pianist Murray Perahia, has become one of the most sought-after and cherished pianists of our time. On March 8, 2004, he was awarded an honorary KBE by Her Majesty The Queen of England, in recognition of his outstanding service to music.

Murray Perahia performs in all of the major international music centers and with every leading orchestra. He is the Principal Guest Conductor of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, with whom he has toured as conductor and pianist throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, and South East Asia. Recently, Mr. Perahia embarked on an ambitious project to edit the complete Beethoven Sonatas for the Henle Urtext Edition. He also produced and edited numerous hours of recordings of recently discovered master classes by the legendary pianist, Alfred Cortot, which resulted in the highly acclaimed Sony CD release, “Alfred Cortot: The Master Classes”.

Mr. Perahia’s 2007-08 season began when he opened Carnegie Hall’s 117th season on October 3, 2007, playing Beethoven’s Concerto No. 4 under David Robertson with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.
