About Brian Ganz:
Brian Ganz will be the artist teacher for three pianists on May 23 at Steinway Gallery Annex in N. Bethesda. Mr. Ganz is widely regarded as one of the leading pianists of his generation. A laureate of the Marguerite Long Jacques Thibaud and the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium International Piano Competitions, he has performed nationally and internationally in recital and as soloist with such orchestras as the St. Louis Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Baltimore Symphony, National Philharmonic, the National Symphony and the London Sinfonia. Mr. Ganz continues a multi-year project in partnership with the National Philharmonic to perform the complete works of Frederic Chopin at the Music Center at Strathmore. The Washington Post has written “One comes away from a recital by pianist Brian Ganz exhilarated by the power of the performance but also moved by his search for artistic truth.”
Mr. Ganz is artist in residence at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and just retired after 21 years as member of the piano faculty at the Peabody Conservatory. He is artist-editor of the Schirmer Performance Edition of Chopin’s Preludes.
