When he was seventeen he entered the Mannes College of Music, where he graduated in conducting and composition. Perahia continued studying the piano with teachers like Artur Balsam and Mieczyslaw Horszowski. It was during this time that he met and worked with musicians like Rudolf Serkin and Pablo Casals. In fact it was a performance of Bachâs St. Mathew Passion conducted by Casals that turned out to be one of the most important experiences in young Perahiaâs career. One of the first highlights in Perahia's concert career as a pianist was his Carnegie Hall debut in 1968.

Daneben nahm er Privatstunden bei den Pianisten Mieczyslaw Horszowski und Artur Balsam. In jener Zeit hörte Perahia vor allem Aufnahmen von Horowitz, Clifford Curzon, Schnabel sowie von seinem Lehrer Horszowski.

Later, he developed a close friendship with Vladimir Horowitz, whose perspective and personality have been an abiding inspiration.

NDR Info - Murray Perahia Plays Bach Translate this page NDR Info - murray perahia Plays Bach - Der amerikanische pianist murray perahia hat eine neue CD mit Konzerten von Bach herausgebracht. http://www.ndrinfo.de/ndrinfo_pages_std/0,2758,OID197554,00.html
Extractions: In der zweiten Hälfte der 90er Jahre konnte der amerikanische Pianist Murray Perahia vier Jahre lang seinen Beruf wegen einer schweren Handverletzung nicht ausüben. In diesen vier Jahren hat sich Murray Perahia mit dem Studium von Partituren beschäftigt, vor allem mit Partituren von Johann Sebastian Bach. Insofern ist es kaum ein Wunder, dass seine Rückkehr auf die Konzertbühnen von CD-Einspielungen vor allem mit Werken von Bach begleitet wurde. Nun hat Murray Perahia eine neue CD mit Konzerten von Bach herausgebracht. Diesmal hat er das Italienische Konzert, das Konzert für Flöte, Violine und Klavier und das Fünfte Brandenburgische Konzert aufgenommen. Und wie schon bei mehreren vorangegangenen CD-Einspielungen stand ihm auch diesmal wieder die Academy of St. Martin in the Fields zur Seite. Die Musik des großen Barock-Komponisten Johann Sebastian Bach ist für Murray Perahia eine ständige Quelle der Inspiration. Perahia hat es sich aufgrund seiner Wertschätzung für Bach nie leicht gemacht. Die Durchdringung des thematischen und emotionalen Gehalts seiner Musik ist für Perahia zwingende Notwendigkeit, gerade weil es zu Bachs Zeiten das Klavier noch gar nicht gab. Das Schwierige am Klavier ist, dass es so viele verschiedene Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten hat. Man kann laut und leise spielen. Man hat wunderbare Möglichkeiten am Klavier. Nur, wie nutzt man sie, wenn man weiß, dass die gebräuchlichsten Tasten-Instrumente der damaligen Zeit, die Orgel und das Cembalo, diese dynamischen Unterschiede nicht hatten? Man konnte einfach nicht lauter oder leiser spielen. Man konnte die Registratur ändern, was aber nur die Klangfarbe und nicht die Lautstärke veränderte. Nicht viel jedenfalls. Es ist also schwierig, das herauszufinden. Man kann aber als Pianist nicht auf die Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten des Klaviers verzichten. Das wäre unmusikalisch. Die einzige Möglichkeit, dieses Problem zu lösen, ist es demnach, Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten zu verwenden, die am besten zur Struktur des Stückes passen. Das Schwierige ist, genau diese Struktur eines Stückes zu finden.
Extractions: Full Review Over the past thirty years, there has been a revival of interest in the keyboard works of Handel and Scarlatti. Bearing in mind that most people knew Handel and Scarlatti's works only through a few pieces and not as a whole, this new renaissance has truly rewarded those of us who have wanted to hear more works than the usual ones that are played in recital all over the world. Murray Perahia has been a pianist for whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration. He has recorded much of the classical repertoire including the complete piano concertos of Mozart and most of the keyboard music of Chopin. He is a pianist who commands both a great deal of lyricism and a tremendous amount of virtuosity. In a certain sense, he manages to combine both fire and ice in his playing to produce recordings and concerts that are treasured by listeners and classical music lovers all over the world.

The Academy of St.-Martin-in-the-Fields also has the unique distinction of being the most recorded orchestra in history, with well over 700 entries in the latest Schwann catalog. The agile, polished strings, the mellifluous winds, the absolute precision of ensemble playing all are the Academys trademarks and amply demonstrated in last Friday nights concert.
Extractions: Royce Hall, UCLA T his was pianist Murray Perahia's second visit to So Cal in six months. A recital at UCLA's Royce Hall means the instrumentalist will have to work extra hard to register an impact, compared to the vocalist, who has much flattering acoustics to work with. Certainly, the serious program of Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms required that nothing be left to chance. Every phrasing and dynamic marking were scrupulously observed, every musical vignette vividly brought to life. In the Op. 12 Fantasiest cke, we heard highly impassioned playing ("

Extractions: Recording: whatever Here we have evidence as to why the major record companies are having financial difficulty. Ego and stupidity. Why release this now? Haven't these works been recorded enough? But they haven't been recorded by Murray Perahia. So what? We don't need yet another recording of the same thing by yet another superstar. Put the out-of-print versions back in print and record something new! When the musician's face is yet again the cover art and his name comes before Bach's I just have to cringe. What idiot marketing MBA thought this up? Be that as it may, is this a good recording? Sure. In fact, the music is lovely. It's Bach, it can't be anything else. I do believe Murray Perahia is an extraordinary pianist and his Bach recordings are generally wonderful (if pathetically redundant). His piano versions of the harpsichord concerts are fabulous, I enjoy them very much. But Brandenburg No. 5 with piano instead of harpsichord? No way. I am not a harpsichord or HIP purist. In fact, I've recommended everything from banjo to Moog. But crossing the piano vs. harpsichord line really doesn't work here.

Extractions: Murray Perahia performs tonight at the Wisconsin Union Theater. Ever since he won the Leeds International Competition in 1972, Murray Perahia has been on a slow and steady climb toward becoming the finest American classical pianist of his generation. Now he is there. Perahia, who on Thursday taught an open master class at the University of Wisconsin School of Music, himself studied formally with the legendary Rudolf Serkin and Mieczyslaw Horszowski and informally with Vladimir Horowitz. He was, in fact, the last person to hear Horowitz play the piano, the night before the Russian-born virtuoso died in 1989. Perahia, a shy man who shuns celebrity and glamour, is known for interpretations that are both singingly lyrical and intellectually penetrating.
