Pianist David Greilsammer

Pianist David Greilsammer presents his "Labyrinth" program, charting a musical journey that uncovers the universal and timeless qualities that music can hold. “On An Overgrown Path”, Leoš Janáček’s anthology of short piano pieces, anchors the program, with a treasure trove of short works interspersed along the way, generating innumerable new pathways through the “labyrinth” of musical ideas. Greilsammer experiments freely with dynamic and atmospheric juxtapositions; Beethoven with György Ligeti, Erik Satie with CPE Bach, Marin Marais with Ofer Pelz, combinations that testify to Gresilsammer’s panoptic approach towards repertoire that we often think of as disparate and unconnected. Greilsammer's Labyrinth creates new dialogues along old routes.

 

Known for his eclectic and fascinating programs, conductor and pianist David Greilsammer is recognized as one of the most audacious and adventurous artists in the classical world. Praised as a musician who is never afraid of taking risks on stage, he has created some of today’s most eclectic and daring musical projects, winning distinctions from The New York Times, The Sunday Times, The French Music Awards, and many others.

In addition to presenting ground-breaking performances, ranging from Baroque to Contemporary music, David Greilsammer has also been celebrated for his Mozart interpretations. He has performed all of Mozart’s piano sonatas in a one-day “marathon” in Paris, and he has also played and conducted all of Mozart’s twenty-seven piano concertos in one season.

David Greilsammer’s albums, as pianist and conductor, have been released by Vanguard, Sony Classical, and Naïve, and have won numerous international prizes and awards. In the last few years, his recordings have received five distinctions from The New York Times, including one for “Scarlatti:Cage:Sonatas”, a bold solo recital that was selected among the ten most important events in the world of classical music.

Since 2013, David Greilsammer has been Music and Artistic Director of the Geneva Camerata, one of the most innovative orchestras internationally. With this ensemble, he has toured all over the world, performing in the most prestigious venues and festivals.

David Greilsammer has also performed as guest conductor/soloist with the BBC Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, Hamburg Symphony, La Verdi Orchestra di Milano, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Beijing National Symphony, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Mexico National Symphony, Jerusalem Symphony, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony.

In the past few seasons he has given solo recitals at the Wigmore Hall in London, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, Mostly Mozart Festival in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington, Verbier Festival, Forbidden City Theatre in Beijing, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, and the Venice Biennale.

Released by Naïve on a new album this season, his piano recital named “Labyrinth” has already been described by the international press as ‘ingenious’, ‘fascinating’, and ‘courageous’. This unusual solo program will also be performed on tour, throughout the USA, Europe, and Asia.
