Murray Perahia signs to DG after 43 years with Sony

Murray Perahia, one of today’s most celebrated pianists, has signed a new deal with Deutsche Grammophon.For more than four decades, the American-born, London-based pianist has recorded exclusively for Sony Classical (including with Columbia Masterworks, its predecessor). His performances of core repertoire from solo Chopin, Bach and Brahms to the complete Mozart concertos, have all become key reference recordings, many securing either Editor’s Choices or Gramophone Awards.  

DG’s announcement hints at the potential for new recordings of some of these works, stating that Perahia ‘intends to record key works from his repertoire, thereby preserving insights gained over the course of a career that began in the mid-1960s and continues to flourish as he approaches his 70th birthday next April.’ Perahia himself added that ‘There is something very special for me about revisiting music by composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin and Brahms. Their inexhaustible art remains a constant source of inspiration to me. My exciting new relationship with Deutsche Grammophon means that I can share my interpretations with the widest global audience.’

His first release on the Yellow Label will be Bach's French Suites, due out on October 7.
