ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Known for combining impeccable musicianship and technique with innovative and appealing programming, American concert pianist Jason Paul Peterson has captivated hundreds of audiences throughout North America and Europe. The Leipziger Volkszeitung in Germany referred to a recent concert as “a piano concert of a completely special sort… absolutely an exquisite experience.” He has been described as “a national phenomenon” (The Milwaukee Journal) and a musician of “Technical brilliancy who conveyed all the nuances in performance” (Polonaise Magazine).

Recent concert highlights include several performances in Carnegie Hall, and the Chicago Cultural Center, a performance at the Kennedy Center, and recitals in London, Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Leipzig, Hamburg, Basel, and countless other cities. Two performances of the Tchaikovsky First Piano Concerto with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra drew more than 20,000 listeners, and his two solo recitals on the historic Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series in Chicago were broadcast live nationwide via radio, internet, and cable television. Dr. Peterson recently performed an American-Soviet program in the Rathaus of Torgau Germany for the Elbe Festival, commemorating the meeting of Soviet and U.S. troops in 1945. He also presented a series of solo recitals in Switzerland featuring the music of Swiss composers, and will perform this music in Carnegie Hall in February 2015.

In great demand as a collaborative performer, Dr. Peterson has accompanied scores of artists, including flutist Marianne Gedigian (Boston Symphony), Vahn Armstrong (concertmaster, Virginia Symphony), Robert Spring (clarinetist), and David Small (baritone). In Switzerland, he has a piano duo with Antje Maria Traub and tours with the new music group Ensemble Spektrum.

As a teenager, Dr. Peterson was awarded grants from the Chopin Foundation of the United States for four consecutive years. He is the winner of the 2006 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition and the only American finalist in the 2001 Grace Welsh International Prize for Piano. His recent performances of Swiss music have been supported by the Aargauer Kuratorium, the Migros Kulturprozent, the Peter Mieg Foundation, the Werner Wehrli Foundation, and the cities of Ennetbaden and Baden.

A Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Peterson studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Weimar, Germany while completing his doctoral dissertation on the piano music of Georgy Enescu at the Peabody Conservatory. He also holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music. Dr. Peterson’s principal teachers include Natalya Antonova, Anton Nel, Alexander Shtarkman, and Grigory Gruzman. He currently resides near Zurich, Switzerland and is a faculty member of the Kantonsschule Baden, having previously held a full-time faculty position at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
