The past few years have seen Christopher Taylor emerge as one of the nation’s foremost musicians. Audiences and critics alike hail the intensity and artistry he brings to the works of masters ranging from Bach and Beethoven to Boulez and Bolcom; The Washington Post, for instance, deems Mr. Taylor “one of the most impressive young pianists on the horizon today,” and The New York Times termed a recent performance as “astonishing.” He was named an American Pianists Association Fellow for 2000, before which he received an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 1996 and the Bronze Medal in 1993 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, where he was the first American to receive such high recognition in 12 years. In 1990, he took first prize in the William Kapell International Piano Competition, and also became one of the first recipients of the Irving Gilmore Young Artists Award. In recent seasons, Mr. Taylor has concertized around the globe, performing throughout Europe and in Korea, the Philippines, and the Caribbean. In the United States, he has appeared with the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics; the Detroit, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Houston symphonies; the Boston Pops; and the Polish Chamber Philharmonic. As a soloist, he has performed in such venues as New York’s Carnegie and Alice Tully halls, Washington’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Ravinia and Aspen festivals, and dozens others.
Taylor’s first recording released by Jonathan Digital featured works by present-day American composers William Bolcom and Derek Bermel. His most recent recording, Liszt’s Twelve Transcendental Etudes, was released on the Liszt Digital label. In addition to performing, he is currently Paul Collins Associate Professor of Piano Performance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
