Adam Neiman, Artistic Director

Grammy Award nominee Adam Neiman is hailed as one of the premiere pianists, composers, and entrepreneurs of his generation. With a distinguished international career and an encyclopedic repertoire that spans more than sixty concerti, Neiman has performed as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Belgrade, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Saint Louis, San Francisco, Slovenia, Umbria, and Utah, as well as with the New York Chamber Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington D.C.

An acclaimed recitalist, Neiman has performed in most of the major cities and concert halls throughout the United States and Canada. His European solo engagements have brought him to Italy, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Japan, where he made an eight-city tour culminating in his debut at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.

Neiman’s multifaceted career includes his recent appointment as the Artistic Director of the Manchester Music Festival in Vermont. In addition, he is the founder and CEO of the record label, Aeolian Classics, LLC, and in 2016 he created the Aeolian Classics Emerging Artist Award Competition, a recording prize bestowed upon an outstanding young artist at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where he serves on the full-time piano faculty.

In recent seasons, Neiman’s activities include several monumental solo recital tours: he is currently presenting the complete Chopin Preludes and Ballades; in 2014-2015 he toured with the complete Preludes and Études-Tableaux by Rachmaninoff, which he recorded for a 2017 triple-disc set on Aeolian Classics; in 2013-2014, Neiman paired Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and “Hammerklavier Sonata,” which he subsequently recorded for Sono Luminus, also due for release in 2017; and throughout the 2011-2013 seasons Neiman presented the complete Liszt Transcendental Études in celebration of the Liszt Bi-Centennial.

An avid chamber musician, Neiman makes frequent appearances at prestigious festivals such as the Mainly Mozart Festival, Seattle Chamber Music Festival, Moritzburg Festival, North Shore Chamber Music Festival, Musical Masterworks Series in Connecticut and South Carolina, Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival, Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players, and the Manchester Chamber Music Festival. After three seasons as a member of Trio Solisti, Neiman capped his tenure with the ensemble with a presentation of the complete chamber music of Johannes Brahms in a series of three concerts at Carnegie Hall in 2015. Neiman was also a founding member of the Corinthian Trio, which toured extensively throughout the United States and the Balkans.

Neiman maintains an active profile as a composer, and most recently the North Shore Chamber Music Festival commissioned Neiman to compose a new chamber work for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano for the 2017 edition of its annual festival. He will also perform his Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra under the baton of Alastair Willis with the Chicago College of Performing Arts Contemporary Ensemble at Ganz Hall. Neiman’s burgeoning compositional output includes two symphonies, a body of chamber music and vocal works, an orchestral cinematic portfolio, and a growing number of solo piano pieces.

His extensive discography includes numerous solo, concerto, and chamber music albums for labels such as VAI, Bridge, Naxos, Sono Luminus, Lyric, and Aeolian Classics.
