A pianist that "defies human description" for some (Concerto Net) and recalls "a young Peter Serkin" for others (The New York Times), Conor Hanick has performed to wide acclaim throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia with some of the world's leading ensembles, instrumentalists, and conductors, and worked with composers as diverse as John Adams and Pierre Boulez. Mr. Hanick recently appeared with The Juilliard Orchestra in Milton Babbitt's Second Piano Concerto at Alice Tully Hall; the Alabama Symphony Orchestra in the premiere of Matthew Aucoin's Piano Concerto; and Alan Gilbert in György Ligeti's Piano Concerto for the New York Philharmonic Biennial. This season he presents recitals in New York, Houston, Portland, Indianapolis, and Chicago for the Chicago Symphony's MusicNOW series; joins The Knights at Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center; and collaborates with composers Caroline Shaw, Chris Cerrone, and Sam Adams.
A recent finalist for the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award, Mr. Hanick is a graduate of Northwestern University and The Juilliard School, where he received his master's and doctorate degrees. For more information visit conorhanick.tumblr.com.
