Known for his eclectic and fascinating programs, conductor and pianist David Greilsammer is recognised as one of today’s most audacious classical artists. The New York Times recently selected his recital Scarlatti:Cage:Sonatas as one of the ten most important musical events of the year. Previously, The New York Times has awarded two of David Greilsammer’s albums, Baroque Conversations and Mozart-In-Between, among the best recordings of the year.
Known as a unique interpreter of both baroque and contemporary music, David Greilsammer is also celebrated for his Mozart performances. In 2008, he performed in Paris all of Mozart’s piano Sonatas in a one day “marathon” and in recent years, he recorded various albums devoted the composer. More recently, he played and conducted Mozart’s twenty-seven piano concertos, in one single season.
Since 2013, David Greilsammer is Music and Artistic Director of the Geneva Camerata (GECA). With this innovative orchestra, he gives more than forty concerts per season, including international tours that have taken him and the ensemble to Paris, Berlin, London, Beijing, Shanghai, Gstaad, Lausanne, Mexico, Morelia, Eilat and Istanbul. David Greilsammer and GECA regularly work with choreographers, actors, visual artists, video artists, as well as jazz, world, electronic, and rock musicians.
David Greilsammer has released four critically acclaimed records on the Naïve label, and in 2011 he signed an exclusive contract with Sony Classical, resulting in three award-winning albums, both as pianist and conductor. His latest recording for Sony presents an unusual encounter between the Sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti and John Cage.
Recently, David Greilsammer has appeared with the San Francisco Symphony, Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, Philharmonique de Radio-France, Taipei Philharmonic, Hamburger Symphoniker, Filarmonica di Torino, Israel Symphony, and Bournemouth Symphony.
