Pianist Michael Chertock has fashioned a successful career as an orchestral soloist, collaborating with conductors such as James Conlon, Jaime Laredo, Keith Lockhart, Erich Kunzel and Andrew Litton. His many orchestral appearances include solo performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, the Toronto Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Detroit Symphony, and numerous other orchestras. He made his Carnegie Hall début in 1999 with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and in June 2005 with the Boston Pops Orchestra, he performed the world première of a work by Todd Machover, commissioned by the Boston Pops expressly for Mr. Chertock. He recently performed as pianist and conductor with the Moscow State Symphony. In 1994, Chertock released on CD a collection of his original arrangements of music from movies entitled Cinematic Piano. Since then, he has recorded three more film albums: Palace of the Winds, Christmas at the Movies and Love at the Movies, which have been praised for their lush, original arrangements and exquisite technical facility. In 2010, Chertock gave the world première of William Perry’s The Silent Years: Three Rhapsodies for Piano and Orchestra which he then recorded for Naxos (8.572567). Chertock serves as Associate Professor of Piano and Head of the Keyboard Studies Division at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music, is principal keyboardist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and is conductor of the Blue Ash-Montgomery Symphony.
