Concert pianist, fortepianist, and harpsichordist

Welcome to my website! I perform on modern piano, fortepiano, and harpsichord, teach piano literature, write, and offer specialties in a variety of wonderful rare repertoire.

3-CD RECORDING!

3 CDs of beautiful solo piano and violin/piano music of Karol Szymanowski, with violinist Blanka Bednarz, for the Musica Omnia label. This repertoire is a much too little-known treasure!

A modern, interdisciplinary introduction to and reference to the composer, for Rowman and Littlefield Press. The first significant English book on Scriabin to appear in many years.

From reviews of complete Scriabin Sonatas on Romeo Records:

Has Scriabin ever been played better? Only Horowitz and Richter can compare ... a pianist of extraordinary depth and imagination ... at once unique, satisfying, and interpretively unimpeachable. ... future generations can rely [on these recordings] for definitive interpretations.
