Consistently praised for his impressive and wide-ranging musicality in nearly every style, Jeffrey Grossman’s extensive experience as a keyboard performer includes repertoire for the piano, harpsichord, and organ from every period of the classical repertoire. A native of Detroit, Michigan, he holds degrees in music from Harvard University and Carnegie Mellon University, where he studied conducting with Grammy-award winning conductor Robert Page. He co-founded and currently serves as artistic director of the Cambridge Early Music Project, an organization which has presented numerous concerts in the Boston area. As a pianist, he has studied with Louis Nagel and Lois Shapiro.
Grossman is engaged in an ongoing recording project that seeks to explore connections among diverse styles of keyboard music from all eras and on numerous modern and historical keyboard instruments. The first CD in this project, “There and Back” released in September 2006, includes music by fourteen composers from four continents and four centuries. “Reunion/Retrouvailles,” the next disc in the series, was released in March 2007. It represents an even wider range of musical styles and composers, from Mozart to Wuorinen, including several world premiere recordings and newly commissioned works. In 2008, Naxos released his recording of the chamber music of Leland Smith, and his recording of piano solos by Keith Barnard will be released on the Metier label in 2010. He has also recorded for the Naxos and Albany labels.
