Known for his audacious, fascinating and imaginative interpretations, pianist and conductor David Greilsammer is recognised as one of today’s most adventurous classical artists. The New York Times recently selected his albums Baroque Conversations and Mozart In-Between among the Recordings of the Year, in addition to choosing his recital Scarlatti:Cage:Sonatas as one of the ten most important musical events of the year.
Praised by the press and public as a creator of numerous ground‑breaking musical projects, ranging from early baroque to contemporary music, David Greilsammer has also been celebrated for his Mozart performances.
