As a solo violinist James Buswell has performed more than one hundred concertos with orchestras on five continents. He was a GRAMMY® nominee for his recording of the Barber Violin Concerto with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Distinguished conductors with whom he has collaborated include Leonard Bernstein, George Szell, Seiji Ozawa, Zubin Mehta, André Previn, Pierre Boulez, and Michael Tilson Thomas. Early in his musical career he took up the baton, and he has conducted opera, ballet, and symphonic repertoire also on five continents. While still attending Harvard University Buswell became well-known as a chamber musician and recitalist. He performed at the opening of Alice Tully Hall in New York with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, which he later joined as a regular artist-member. He has given world première performances and made recordings of works by many contemporary composers including Ned Rorem, Yehudi Wyner, Gunther Schuller, John Harbison, Gian Carlo Menotti, and Ellen Taafe Zwilich. James Buswell is also known as one of America’s pre-eminent teachers. He was on the faculties of both Indiana University and the New England Conservatory when each institution experienced a golden age of string pedagogy.
