    Pianist and conductor Vladimir Feltsman’s vast repertoire encompasses music from the Baroque to 20th-century composers. A regular guest soloist with leading symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad, during the 2010–2011 season he performs with the Chicago Symphony and Sir Andrew Davis and will be a featured soloist with the orchestras of Seattle, Long Beach, Columbus, and Greensboro. He will also perform recitals in New York, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Kansas City, Lincoln, and Fort Worth. Mr. Feltsman’s last solo recital at Carnegie Hall was in December 2009, and this performance marks his seventh solo recital in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage since his debut in 1987. A major highlight of his 2009–2010 season was a performance Mozart’s Concerto K.595 on his own fortepiano with the American Classical Orchestra at Alice Tully Hall. Mr. Feltsman expressed his lifelong devotion to the music of J.S. Bach in a cycle of concerts which presented the major clavier works of the composer spanning four consecutive seasons from 1992 to 1996 at the 92nd Street Y. In January 2003 with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center he presented Masterpieces of the Russian Underground, an exploration of Russian contemporary music through an unprecedented survey of piano and chamber works by 14 different composers from Shostakovich to the present day. In 2006, Mr. Feltsman performed all of the Mozart Piano Sonatas at the Mannes School of Music and NYU’s Tisch Center presented by New School on a specially built replica of the Walter fortepiano. A dedicated educator of young musicians, Mr. Feltsman holds the Distinguished Chair of Professor of Piano at the State University of New York, New Paltz, and is a member of the piano faculty at the Mannes College of Music. Mr. Feltsman’s extensive discography has been released on the Melodiya, Sony Classical, Musical Heritage Society, and Nimbus labels.
