A native of Los Angeles, Norman Krieger is one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation and is highly regarded as an artist of depth, sensitivity and virtuosic flair. In fall 2016 he joined the faculty of the distinguished Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

Mr. Krieger regularly appears with the major orchestras of North America, among them the New York, Los Angeles, Rochester Philharmonics, the Minnesota Orchestra, Boston Pops Orchestra, as well as Mexico’s Orquesta Filarmónica de la Ciudad de México and Orquesta Sinfónica de Xalapa. He also has performed with orchestra in Germany, Holland, Czech Republic, Turkey, New Zealand and Tawain.

In recital, Krieger has appeared throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico and Asia, while chamber music collaborations have included appearances with sopranos Beverly Hoch and Sheri Greenawald, cellists Jian Wang and Zuill Bailey, and the Tokyo and Manhattan string quartets. His debut at New York City’s prestigious Carnegie Hall and Mostly Mozart Festival earned him an immediate invitation to Lincoln Center’s 2005-06 Great Performers Series.

In 1987, Krieger made headlines by being named the Gold Medal Winner of the first Palm Beach Invitational Piano Competition. At age 15, he became a full-scholarship student of Adele Marcus at The Juilliard School, at which he earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Subsequently, he studied with Alfred Brendel and Maria Curcio in London and earned an Artist Diploma from the New England Conservatory, where he worked with Russell Sherman. A champion of contemporary music, he features the music of John Adams, Leonard Bernstein, John Corigliano, Daniel Brewbaker, Donald Crockett, Judith St. Croix, Lukas Foss and Lowell Liebermann among his active repertoire.

Krieger’s solo recordings include albums available on the Artisie 4 label: Norman Krieger: Transformations, Gershwin in Prague, Norman Krieger: Piano Recital, and American Piano Concertos. Krieger’s chamber music collaborations include Raising the Roof, Voices through Time, and Summerdays.
