James Dick is recognized as one of the truly important pianists of his generation, bringing keyboard sonorities of captivation, opulence, and brilliance to performances that radiate intellectual insight and emotional authenticity. He was recognized as one of the University of Texas Distinguished Alumni in 2009. Major prizes in the Tchaikovsky, Busoni and Leventritt International Competitions were a prelude to an eminent career highlighted by acclaimed recitals and concerto performances in the world’s premier concert halls, including New York’s Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Town Hall, and 92nd Street Y; London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, and Purcell Room; Le Theatre du Chatelet and Salle Gaveau in Paris; Academy of Music in Philadelphia; Kennedy Center and National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; and Orchestra Hall in Chicago. He has performed with Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, National Symphony, and many major orchestras, with such conductors as Ormandy, Barbirolli, Levin, Maazel, Kondrashin, Spano, Oue, Sanderling, Hogwood, de Preist, and Verrot. He has been a guest soloist with Cleveland, Tokyo, Parisii, Ravel, Debussy, and Cassatt quartets, and Dorian and Moragues wind quintets, concertizing as well with Yo-Yo Ma, Regis Pasquier, Young Uck Kim, Raphael Hillyer, Rostislav Dubinsky, Martin Lovett, Andrew Marriner, Guy Deplus, and Carol Wincenc.
