Through his recitals, concerto appearances, and critically acclaimed recordings, Irish pianist John O'Conor has earned a reputation as a masterful interpreter of the Classic and early Romantic piano repertoires. He has appeared with such orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony, l'Orchestre National de France, Scottish and Stuttgart Chamber Orchestras, Cleveland Orchestra, Florida Orchestra and the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Dallas, Detroit, Seattle, and Washington DC in North America. John O'Conor first gained widespread attention in 1986 with the release of the initial volume of his complete recorded Beethoven sonata cycle which was issued as a box set in 1994. CD Review described Mr. O'Conor's performances of these sonatas as ‘piano recording of the highest caliber and Beethoven playing at its best’ and went on to say ‘This Beethoven series should become the complete set of choice for the next decade.’ He has made more than 20 recordings including the complete Beethoven Bagatelles, which was cited by The New York Times as the best recording of these works; four volumes of Mozart Piano Concertos with Sir Charles Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra; numerous works by Schubert including the late A major Sonata, the complete Impromptus and Moments Musicals, Waltzes and the ‘Trout’ Quintet with the Cleveland Quartet; and two volumes of short piano pieces entitled ‘Piano Classics’ and ‘Autumn Songs’.
