Nicholas Angelich

— Piano

Angelich found an unexpected profundity in (Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor) with spellbinding, rapt playing... Yannick Nézet-Séguin and [London Philharmonic] were at one with the soloist, providing all he needed to magnify this work to the limits of its passionate expressive capability. It was a very fine performance indeed and set the bar high for the second half of the concert.
Ken Ward, Bachtrack, March 2014

Nicholas Angelich is one of the greatest living interpreters of Brahms.. It has a complex architecture, subtle colors and depth of spirit. He knows how to make clear the dense language of the German composer without altering its power. He managed to make us forget the difficulty of the daunting score, playing freely, with beautiful sound, a wide dynamic range, without virtuosity or effort, he never let us forget the overwhelming message of the music he embodied with all his soul.
Olivier Bellamy, Huffington Post, June 2012

Angelich…(gave) a strikingly imaginative performance (Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2, Boston Symphony Orchestra/Masur) that kept the ear constantly engaged through its subtle explorations of color, texture, and harmony… conjuring unusual veiled sonorities, drawing out inner lines that often go unnoticed, and dispatching rapid passagework with remarkable lightness and dynamic control. Pianissimos floated effortlessly into the hall.
Jeremy Eichler, The Boston Globe, October 2011


Born in the U.S., Nicholas Angelich began studying the piano at age five with his mother and in two years gave his first concert of Mozart’s Concerto K. 467. He entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris at thirteen where he studied with Aldo Ciccolini, Yvonne Loriod, Michel Beroff, and Marie Françoise Bucquet.

This 2016-17 season sees Angelich perform with Orchestre National de Bordeaux-Aquitaine, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and Euskadiko Orkestra Sinfonikoa.
