October 6, 2013Review of Springfield Symphony Opening NightThe Republican reviews Springfield Symphony's Opening Night concert - Ravel G Major Concerto: "His dexterity was blindingly precise from the lightest touch to the most peremptory outburst. In the languid central adagio, he made the piano sing as few players can. Articulation such as this allows the listener to hear the “music between the notes” and to briefly forget that the piano is essentially a percussion instrument."click here for more info

May 10, 2012Swiss pianist brings bards of classical music to life

Review of Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 with Calgary Philharmonic and Roberto Minczuk

December 2011Solo CD named one of 2011's Top Classical Albums of the Year by Timeout NY


Winner of a 2008 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Swiss-born American pianist Gilles Vonsattel is an artist of uncommon versatility. With repertoire that ranges from Bach’s “Art of the Fugue” to works by Iannis Xenakis, and equally comfortable as a soloist and chamber musician, Vonsattel displays a musical curiosity and sense of adventure that has gained him many admirers. His performance highlights during the 2013-2014 Season include Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major with the Springfield (MA) Symphony, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9 with the Quebec Symphony, recital debuts at the Festival Lucerne and in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, as well as recitals in Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Frankfurt, and Ludwigshafen (Germany).

Mr. Vonsattel began touring in concert after capturing the top prize at the prestigious 2002 Naumburg International Piano Competition. He made his Alice Tully Hall debut that same year and has since performed with the Warsaw Philharmonic; at Zürich’s Tonhalle, Warsaw’s Chopin Festival, and Tokyo’s Opera City Hall; and in the U.S. with the Utah, Santa Fe, Nashville, and Grand Rapids symphonies, and the Boston Pops Orchestra. In July 2010 he made his Boston Symphony Orchestra and Tanglewood debuts in the Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor under Herbert Blomstedt. He played the same concerto in May 2012 with the Calgary Philharmonic under Roberto Minczuk. In July 2011 he made his San Francisco Symphony debut playing Mozart and he returned in July 2012 to play Beethoven’s Concerto No. 1, again under conductor Michael Francis.

Gilles Vonsattel has performed in recital on the stages of Boston’s Symphony Hall, Cleveland’s Severance Hall, Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, Aspen Music Festival’s Benedict Music Tent, Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, and Geneva’s Victoria Hall. Recent recitals include performances at the Library of Congress, Wigmore Hall, the Gilmore Festival, La Roque d’Anthéron, Musée d’Orsay, Davos Festival, Zürich’s Tonhalle, Warsaw’s National Philharmonic Hall, La Jolla Music Society, the Munich Gasteig and Atlanta’s Spivey Hall. He has also appeared at such prestigious festivals as Rockport, Angelfire, Ottawa, Bridgehampton, Bard SummerScape, Seattle, Caramoor, West Cork, and Archipel.

Deeply committed to the chamber music repertoire, Gilles Vonsattel has been an artist member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since the 2012-2013 season, and is a former member of Chamber Music Society Two. He has performed with the Seattle and Philadelphia chamber music societies, and has collaborated with artists such as Emmanuel Pahud, Jorg Widmann, Kim Kashkashian, Ida Kavafian, Cho-Liang Lin, Paul Neubauer, Jerome Lowenthal, David Shifrin, Heinz Holliger, Gary Hoffman, David Jolley, Carter Brey, and Yo-Yo Ma. He has performed with Trio Valtorna and the Borromeo, St. Petersburg, Pacifica, Ying, Orion, and Ebène quartets. He has given world premieres of works by Ned Rorem (Alice Tully Hall) and Nico Muhly (National Gallery of Art), and in recent seasons has performed the music of George Benjamin, Heinz Holliger, Jorg Widman, Georges Aperghis, and John Harbison.

First prize winner at the 2006 Geneva International Music Competition, Gilles Vonsattel was a laureate of the 2009 Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary, and is also a laureate of the Cleveland and Dublin piano competitions. He has been heard frequently on NPR’s Performance Today, Radio France Musique, CBC, ARD, and the BBC. Vonsattel’s recording of Liszt solo works and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with L’Orchestre de Chambre de Genève was released in 2007 on the Pan Classics label to critical acclaim. His recording of Bartók’s Contrasts on Deutsche Gramophone with members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is available for download on iTunes. His 2011 recording on the Honens/Naxos label of music of Debussy, Honegger, Holliger and Ravel was named one of Time Out New York’s classical albums of the year.

After studying with pianist David Deveau in Boston, Vonsattel received his B.A. in political science and economics from Columbia University and his M.M. from The Juilliard School, where he worked with Jerome Lowenthal. He is Assistant Professor of Piano at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.




...strong, nuanced keyboard articulation...New York Times

Mr. Vonsattel used his razor-sharp technique to make the older works sound as adventurous as the more recent ones.

New York Times
Vonsattel is without fail immersed in his music-making...this was exactly how a piano recital should be, of a sort that will leave indelible memories and impressions. Mr. Vonsattel's new CD is a document that reveals an exceptional talent.Neue Zürcher Zeitung

The big news is that Mr. Vonsattel is a superb pianist...he produced a pure and singing tone...everything, always, was in balance.

New York Sun

Gilles Vonsattel...summoned an eminently fluid and sensual touch in order to bring to life the harmonies of Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit and then galvanized his colleagues in the Schumann Piano Quintet.

Le Temps

Most amazing was Vonsattel's ability to weave in and out of such different styles with ease and authority...Vonsattel has that complete mastery of himself as well as the instrument.

San Francisco Classical Voice

...a pianist well worth watching

New York Times

He has a way of taming the piano without ever raising his voice, [with] a firm caress that eloquently and softly moves through his hands. In chamber music, this predisposition is marvelous. For Mozart it fits like a glove.

Le Temps

At once he plays like clockwork...underneath his ornamentation and striking sonic architecture is a wellspring of substance...from unabashed ardor to a musical communion that seems to come straight from whatever heavens he believes in.

Timeout NY
This was a sterling performance of the concerto, the fearsome technical challenges met in a clear-eyed way and with the courage and the physical strength needed for the big moments....the piano tone was full, rich and generously projected, and without a hint of hardness. The rapturous slow movement was as successful as the framing movements - a thing of beauty.Calgary Herald

The discovery was the Swiss-born, American-raised and -trained Gilles Vonsattel...he mesmerized for minutes on end.

Houston Chronicle

...utter ease, fluidity, and calm amid the most technically challenging music.

Houston Chronicle

He seems to balance intellect and feeling perfectly. There's no hint of haze in his Debussy and Ravel, but rather a finely chiseled elegance...his tone somehow manages both crystalline clarity and a core of warmth.

Dallas Morning News

Swiss-born Gilles Vonsattel was dazzling in some insolently difficult Liszt and Gottschalk. If any doubt remained as to Saint-Saëns's capacity to (sometimes) write great music, surely Vonsattel and Edward Arron put it to flight with 1872's wonderful first Cello and Piano Sonata.

David ShengoldOpera News

Vonsattel possesses a dazzling technique that can storm the heavens or sing in poetic introspection.... An impressive artist and dynamic virtuoso, Vonsattel left an indelible mark in a terrific Miami debut.

Miami Herald

With his heart and soul fully engaged with the keyboard, the enormously talented pianist Gilles Vonsattel gave a knock-out performance.

Danbury NewsTimes
Sovereign techniqueSüddeustche Zeitung

From the beautifully and sensitively played first-movement cadenza to the concerto's stunningly bravura ending, Vonsattel turned in a performance that had the packed house at Dawson Auditorium on its feet almost before the final notes died away, and rightly so.

Daily Telegram

Having to convince audiences that his interpretation of a great work of art is not only valid but of special interest seemed like child's play to the evening's guest artist, Gilles Vonsattel... every note was played with unflinching certainty.
