About the Artist

Acclaimed young American pianist Drew Petersen is a sought-after soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician in the United States, Europe and Asia. He’s been praised for his commanding and poetic performances of repertoire ranging from Bach to Zaimont, and is the winner of the 2017 American Pianists Awards and a 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant. Since then he has made debuts with the Buffalo, Houston, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Pacific, Phoenix, Sarasota, and Tucson Symphony Orchestras, and has appeared in solo recitals at the Kennedy Center, Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, Ravinia Festival, Cleveland International Piano Competition, and Dame Myra Hess Concerts in Chicago. His debut album on the Steinway & Sons record label of works by American composers Barber, Carter, Griffes, Ives, and Zaimont has earned him widespread critical acclaim, including as Gramophone Magazine’s “One to Watch”, acknowledging his presence as a fast-rising star.

“Mr. Petersen had technique to spare during the dazzling episodes, and plumbed the piece for tenderness and lyricism that many pianists gloss over.” - The New York Times.
