christopherorileyChristopher O’Riley is a pianist and a 2005 Chamber Music Festival Mentor Musician

An artist whose poetic gifts and captivating virtuosity have made him one of the most important and versatile pianists performing before the public today, Christopher O’Riley enjoys a thriving concert career. His singularly broad repertoire ranges from music of the English Renaissance and French Baroque periods to the new works of today’s leading composers to such non-classical forms as the tango and his interpretation of the music of the British rock band, Radiohead.

Recognition of his talent has been widespread. His honors include top prizes at the Van Cliburn, Leeds, Busoni and Montreal competitions, as well as an Avery Fisher Career Grant and the Andrew Wolf Memorial Chamber Music Prize. As an emerging young pianist, he enjoyed the sponsorship of Young Concert Artists, the Xerox/Affiliate Artists Program and the Pro Musicis Foundation.

Even as he explores new stylistic territory, Mr. O’Riley remains in demand for his unique interpretations of the standard piano literature. He is a favorite guest with the foremost orchestras in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Kansas City, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and St. Louis, among others. Mr. O’Riley is also the host of a nationally distributed radio program for Public Radio International, “From the Top,” which showcases the vibrant performances and personalities of young musicians.
