Nicholas Ross (Piano)
Leopold Godowsky (1870 – 1928) was one of the greatest pianists of the 20th Century. He also was a first-rate composer, and he left an unmatched body of works for the piano, left hand. Nicholas Ross has the full mettle of these works. Nick Ross performs as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and Europe. He has performed recitals and concertos at such venues as St. Martin’s-in-the-Field and St. John’s Smith Square, London, the Field Room in Dublin, and the Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam. Nick is active as a recording artist, and he has released four solo piano recordings to date, as well as two collaborative discs of Arthur Honegger’s music. Ross’ scholarly research has focused in recent years on proportional structures and the golden ratio in the music of Mozart, Debussy, Bartók and others. He has presented lecture recitals on the topic at conferences in Lancaster, Krakow, and at various universities and colleges in the US.
