Concert Pianist


Hailed as a “heroic virtuoso,” Mark Salman's performances have been described as “powerful,” “astonishing, exacting and evocative,” “dramatic,” “wildly imaginative” and “touchingly lyrical.” Of his performance of Beethoven's Hammerklavier sonata one authority stated, “there are probably only five or six pianists in the world who can play [it] as perfectly.” His performance of Liszt’s transcription of the Beethoven Seventh Symphony closing his 2004–2005 Liszt series was named one of the three “Performances of the Year” for 2005 by the Seattle Weekly.
