Originating Calendar
Krannert Center

Murray Perahia’s readings of landmark repertoire by composers from Bach and Beethoven to Chopin and Liszt offer timeless lessons in sophistication, sensitivity, and expressive intensity. While his approach invariably draws attention to the music and not the musician, Perahia stands in the tradition of the great keyboard virtuosi as an artist armed with consummate technical skills, boundless imagination, and spellbinding eloquence. Perahia’s pianism has matured over more than four decades—he first performed at Krannert Center in 1982—to deliver unique insights into music’s spiritual qualities, its power to communicate where words end. “I love to play the piano,” he says. “I love the instrument. I think it has a series of secrets that we have to find out from it.”
