BIOGRAPHYRecognized as one of the truly important pianists of his generation, internationally renownedconcert pianist and Steinway artist James Dick brings keyboard sonorities of captivation,opulence and brilliance to performances that radiate intellectual insight and emotionalauthenticity.Raised in Hutchinson Kansas, his talent moved him from the farm to the University of TexasMusic Building and out to the world's great concert halls. He received a scholarship to theUniversity of Texas in Austin, studying with Dalies Frantz. Later, he was a Fulbright Scholarand studied with Sir Clifford Curzon in England. Dick's early triumphs as a major prizewinnerin the Tchaikovsky, Busoni and Leventritt International Competitions were a mere prelude to aneminent career highlighted by acclaimed recitals and concerto performances in the world'spremier concert halls, including New York's Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Town Hall and92nd Street "Y"; London's Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room; Le Theatredu Chatelet and Salle Gaveau in Paris; the Academy of Music in Philadelphia; the KennedyCenter and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.; and Orchestra Hall in Chicago.Dick has performed with the Chicago Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the NationalSymphony and many major orchestras, with such conductors as Ormandy, Barbirolli, Levin,Maazel, Kondrashin, Spano, Oue, Sanderling, Hogwood, de Preist and Verrot. In chambermusic, he has been guest soloist with the Cleveland, Tokyo, Parisii, Ravel, Debussy andCassatt quartets and the Dorian and Moragues wind quintets, concertizing as well with Yo-YoMa, Regis Pasquier, Young Uck Kim, Raphael Hillyer, Rostislav Dubinsky, Martin Lovett,Andrew Marriner, Guy Deplus and Carol Wincenc.James Dick has received numerous honors and commendations, including the Texas Medalof Arts, the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture, and HonoraryAssociate of London's Royal Academy of Music.He is a fervent supporter of new music, having commissioned Benjamin Lees, Dan Welcher,Malcolm Hawkins and Chinary Ung to write, respectively, "Etudes", "Shiva's Drum","Rasmandala" and "Rising Light" for piano and orchestra.

REFERENCES & REVIEWS"The sooner Mr. Dick returns to London the better: pianist of this caliber are rare on the South Bank orindeed anywhere else-an artist of such innate musical sensitivity and superlative pianistic skill,establishing an enviable and entirely understandable rapport with the audience."-Bryce Morrison / Music and Musicians, London"His interpretation (Beethoven's Bagatelles Op. 126) emphasized the music's profundities withoutneglecting its surface glitter. His 'Appasionata' was intense, brilliant. The same balance ofthoughtfulness and technical bravura was heard in his performance of Chopin's Polonaise No. 5."-Joseph McLellan, The Washington Post"Dick is an affable and prodigious narrator of story."-Antoine Livio / La Lettre Du Musicien, Paris (Salle Gaveau,)"Many things about Dick's musical and pianistic persona proved reminiscent of his onetime mentor,Clifford Curzon, Including a patrician civility and lucid, beautiful sonority. There is too, an architecturalproportion that gives even Lisztian bravura passages a sense of purpose and emotional containment."-Harris Goldsmith, American Record Guide (Alice Tully Hall, New York)"And among artists whose work he (Van Cliburn) has admired, a few instantly leap to mind: 'JamesDick who is one of the most erudite and thoughtful pianists.' "-Howard Reich, "Van Cliburn""High level musicianship, warm and poetic. "-The New York Post"There was no lack of big juicy climaxes or powerful sonorities handled masterfully and in good tastein pianist James Dick's performance at the National Gallery."-The Washington Post"Soloist Dick, who originally premiered the piece (Lee's Etudes), handled himself not just intellectuallybut physically in a manner that reflects his personality-not showy but passionate, dramatic and at thesame time as mellow as the gorgeous Steinway that is prepared to his specif ications."-Gil French, American Record Guide"Shiva's Drum is the most stimulating new concerto in years. Paired with Welcher's concerto is theSaint-Saens' Concerto No. 2 in G. The two works serve as an impressive showcase for the orchestraand pianist James Dick. Dick commissioned 'Shiva's Drum' and his playing seems to encompass allthe dimensions of the music. Every composer should be blessed to have a new work performed at thislevel."- Bradfore Gowen, Piano & Keyboard Magazine"Dick gave a sweeping, passionate, powerful and sensitive account of Saint-Saens' demanding PianoConcerto No. 2, at the high water mark of French Romanticism. In full technical command , Dickcompassed the most treacherous runs with seeming ease."- San Antonio Express News“It is a rare privilege to collaborate with an artist whose vision and skill are equally matched by intensehumanity. James Dick¹s music making is as pure and heartfelt as it comes. Not a single note isapproached casually the entirety of the score is realized down to the smallest passing gesture, andwe get the sense that he has absorbed the music directly from the composer. It was also animmense pleasure to perform with a soloist whose sensitivity extends throughout the orchestra,inviting each and every player to share in and learn from the performance.”Eric McIntyreMusic Director, Fort Dodge Area SymphonyMusic Director, Central Iowa SymphonyInformation and Booking – Jan Lehman – 512.478.1131
