Michael Boriskin

Pianist MICHAEL BORISKIN, the Artistic Director of Copland House, has worked closely with virtually every major American composer of the last 25 years (including Carter, Foss, Rorem, Harrison, Perle, Del Tredici, Davidovsky, Kernis, Danielpour, and Liebermann, among many others), and has premiered and recorded (for New World, Harmonia Mundi, BMG, CRI, Koch, Albany, etc.) dozens of works. As Copland House Artistic Director, he has guided the restoration and national emergence of Copland's longtime home near New York City as a unique composer's retreat and creative center for American music. As the American Record Guide noted in its most recent issue, "in a real sense, Michael Boriskin, beyond being an admirable virtuoso who plays the most challenging new works with brio and panache, assures that [Copland's] personal qualities live on at Copland House." He is one the American composer's greatest champions.
