Tedd Joselson

Belgian-American pianist, Tedd Joselson was only 17 when he auditioned for the Philadelphia Orchestra’s music director, Eugene Ormandy, after which the famous conductor remarked “Anything you want, you can play with us”.  He was offered a recording contract by RCA whilst still a student at Juilliard, and  quickly became, and remained until his retirement, one of the most sought after performers regularly appearing with nearly every important symphonic ensemble and conductor. He gave his debut piano recital on the Great Performer's series in Lincoln Center in NYC in 1975. Thereafter, his annual sold out recital tours were eagerly awaited events on the music calendar. Noted for his lyrical playing across a wide range of repertoire, his recordings of works span 400 years of music from Bach to Lim, and have won numerous awards including several Grammy nominations.
He retired from public performance in 1999 and now mostly resides in Singapore where he spends much of his time preparing young gifted pianists from around the world for their careers in music, and where he is affectionately known as the nation's adopted son.
