Philippe Entremont

The music master of ceremonies was Philippe Entremont, who soloed in Beethoven’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 4 in addition to conducting the Symphony No. 7…(Entremont) brought to the evening a rewarding, warm musicality, both on the podium and at the keyboard…he commanded respect in every bar, not just from his luminous tone, but from his wonderful combination of buoyancy and earnestness. This was serious, wise Beethoven executed by a master with a skip in his step.” - Daniel Schlosberg

"Entremont's spectacular performance at the keyboard and on the podium proved to an enraptured audience how to play Mozart like an old master, and how to inspire outstanding playing from a scaled-down, revved-up Seattle Symphony...The audience responded with the kind of ovation that bespeaks a fervent hope for this artist's return...may he return for an encore. Several encores, in fact." - Melinda Bargreen
The Seattle Times


The exceptional career of Philippe Entremont began at the age of eighteen when he came to international attention with his great success at New York’s Carnegie Hall playing Jolivet’s piano concerto and Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Since then, he has pursued a top international career as a pianist, and for the last 30 years, on the podium as well.

Philippe Entremont, in the 2013-2014 season, guest conducted European and American orchestras as well as performed numerous piano and chamber music concerts. He also toured the Vienna Concert-Verein . . .
