Jon Nakamatsu

Jon Nakamatsu continues to draw unanimous praise as a true aristocrat of the keyboard, whose playing combines elegance, clarity, and electrifying power. Gold Medallist at the 1997 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, this Japanese-American pianist plays with “the calm assurance that comes of having both a solid technique and a gentle, introspective, interpretive spirit” (The New York Times). His brilliant but unassuming musicianship have made him a clear favorite throughout the world both on the concert circuit and in the recording studio leading to collaborations with such acclaimed conductors as James Conlon, Philippe Entremont, Marek Janowski, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and Michael Tilson Thomas.
