About the Artist

Pianist Murray Perahia first graced our stage in the spring of 1976, shortly after winning the Leeds Piano Competition and earning his first record deal. Forty years later, he returns to Princeton as one of the most in uential pianists of our time, having performed with every leading orchestra to universal acclaim, all while enjoying the friendship of the likes of composer Benjamin Britten and pianist Vladimir Horowitz. The Chicago Tribune declares, “His commanding insights are more than enough to breathe freshness and distinction into works we've heard many times before, but seldom played at this inspired level.” But while his playing has been celebrated for its meticulous, jaw-dropping clarity, he  nds inspiration in the unpredictable: “What really counts for me,” Perahia reveals, “is spontaneity. I never give the same performance twice.” We are honored to have him close our season with one of his trademark unrepeatable evenings.
