Craig Sheppard
, piano

For over thirty years, the pianist Craig Sheppard has maintained a strong and enduring presence in the classical music world, with his unique combination of ebullience and passionate energy, allied to a technical mastery and scholarly objectivity. Craig Sheppard has made five trips to the Far East since June, 2002 - three to Japan, one to Taiwan, and one to Korea - giving lectures and concerts in major venues and universities in the region, and returns to Japan in May, 2006. On May 18th, 2004, he wound up a seven-concert series in Seattle's Meany Theater that was dedicated to the 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas, a popular series that met with great critical acclaim.
In April, 1999, he gave his long-awaited recital début at the Berlin Philharmonic, also to great critical acclaim. In 1999, he was presented by the Seattle Symphony in a highly acclaimed series of lecture/recitals at the Benaroya Hall. He appeared with the Seattle Symphony in 1998 in their inaugural season at Benaroya, and was also previously featured with the orchestra in the opening concerts of the 1996-97 season at the Opera House, along with the violinist Midori. Sheppard has had a high profile in recent summers at the Seattle Chamber Music Festival, playing the world premiere of Richard Danielpour's Songs of the Night among many works from the standard chamber music repertoire. He also performs regularly at the Park City (Utah) International Festival, and both teaches and performs every Summer at the Heifetz International Music Institute in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire (formerly Annapolis, Maryland).
