Mark Anderson (Vancouver)

Chair of the Keyboard Division; Associate Professor, Piano, Piano Pedagogy

In a world where transient glitter is often mistaken for pianistic excellence, Anderson offered that rare commodity: an ability to speak through music without hint of artifice.

– The Washington Post

A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, pianist Mark Anderson’s recordings and performances have met with widespread critical acclaim over the past several decades. Since his successes at the International Piano Competition of Japan (1992), Busoni (1992 – Italy), Leeds (1993 – U.K.), Washington (1993 – Washington D.C.) and William Kapell (Maryland, U.S.) international piano competitions, Mark Anderson has appeared frequently as recitalist, soloist and chamber musician. He has performed in Japan, throughout much of Europe and Great Britain, Ireland and North America.

Mark Anderson has collaborated with conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Nicholas McCegan, William Boughton, George Cleve, and Adam Fischer. In recital, Mark has appeared at New York’s Alice Tully Hall and Weill Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Phillips Gallery in Washington D.C., London’s Wigmore Hall and Zurich’s Tonhalle and elsewhere throughout Europe and North America. His solo and concerto performances are complimented by chamber music work, most recently with the newly formed Röntgen Piano Trio. The trio is committed to illuminating the darker corners of the piano trio literature while giving fresh interpretations of the masterworks in that genre.
