Murray Perahia’s place in the pantheon of great pianists is indisputable. A master of a vast range of repertoire, he can reveal the complex inner voices of a Baroque fugue with stunning clarity, pour out a sustained legato line in a Romantic nocturne, or summon thunder in a Beethoven sonata. In addition to his total technical mastery of the instrument, he is a “musician of big ideas” and “relishes the opportunity to air them in a large public forum” (The New York Times).
