Notes & Reviews:

A "wanderer between worlds" (Lucerne Festival), Swiss-born American pianist Gilles Vonsattel is an artist of extraordinary versatility and originality. Comfortable with and seeking out an enormous range of repertoire, Vonsattel displays a musical curiosity and sense of adventure that has gained him many admirers. Winner of the Naumburg and Geneva competitions as well as a Honens laureate, he has in recent years made his Boston Symphony, Tanglewood, and San Francisco Symphony debuts, while performing recitals and chamber music the US, Japan and the UK and at the Gilmore and Lucerne festivals. His most recent 2014 New York solo recital was hailed as "tightly conceived and passionately performed... a study in intensity" by The New York Times. "Shadowlines", Mr. Vonsattel's second studio recording, is built around composer George Benjamin's large-scale work lending the album its title, and also includes works by Debussy, Messiaen, Scarlatti and Webern.
