Biography from official website:
The Russian-American pianist Sergey Schepkin has performed around the globe, from the United States to Europe to Japan to New Zealand. He made his Carnegie Hall recital début in 1993 (at Weill Recital Hall) to an enthusiastic reception from the audience and The New York Times, and has performed at the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center, Celebrity Series of Boston, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, Boston's Emmanuel Music, the LACMA and Maestro Series in Los Angeles, the Grand and Chamber Philharmonic Halls in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Sumida Triphony Hall in Tokyo, among many other places.
Schepkin’s immense repertoire includes solo, concerto, and chamber works written over the past four hundred years. Schepkin is recognized as one of the world's foremost interpreters of keyboard works by Johann Sebastian Bach, and was hailed by The New York Times as "a formidable Bach pianist . . . [who] plays with the passion and drama of a young Glenn Gould." The Boston Phoenix once described him as "one of Boston's great treasures, a supremely intelligent pianist who plays Bach as well as anyone."
