Pianist Abbey Simon

Pianist Abbey Simon performs Ludwig van Beethoven’s Sonata No. 31 in A Flat Major, op. 110 and Johannes Brahms's 7 Fantasien, op. 116.

Abbey Simon has been hailed as a supervirtuoso, a "pianists' pianist," and he is recognized as one of the grand masters of the piano. Widely considered a specialist in the romantic and early 20th-century repertory, especially the works of Frederic Chopin, Robert Schumann, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Maurice Ravel, he has recorded all the concerti of Rachmaninoff, the complete works of Ravel and Chopin, and Schumann’s Carnaval and Fantasy in C. His Chopin collection encompasses some 20 disks. He has toured in Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific, and appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, the Chicago Symphony, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the London Symphony Orchestra. Simon received part of his academic education and his major musical training at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he was accepted by Josef Hofmann when he was 11 years old. Shortly after his graduation from Curtis, he won the coveted Walter W. Naumburg award, which carries with it a Town Hall debut in New York City. The debut recital was followed by recitals in New York’s Carnegie Hall and extensive tours throughout the United States and Canada. Simon is a long-standing jury member of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the Geneva International Piano Competition, the Leeds International Piano Competition, the Sydney International Piano Competition, and the South Africa International Piano Competition. He currently lives in Geneva, Switzerland, and Houston, Texas, where he is Distinguished Cullen Professor of Piano at the Moores School of Music.
