Peninsula Music Society presents Amir Farid
Amir is a New York-based Iranian-Australian solo pianist, associate artist and chamber musician. He has been described as 'a highly creative musician, a pianist of great intelligence and integrity. He brings strong musical substance to all that he does, imbuing it with his own particular experience and understanding' - David Lockett, Chair of the Adjudicators at the 2006 Australian National Piano Award'.
A graduate of the Royal College of Music London, Amir is a sought-after artist in venues and festivals internationally, such as Carnegie Hall, Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, Musica Viva Festival, Huntington Festival, Mona Foma, and Kuwait Chamber Philharmonia. He has performed concerti with the major Australian orchestras, and collaborated with artists such as tenor Ian Bostridge, saxophonist Claude Delangle, and violinist Arabella Steinbacher. His numerous recordings are heard frequently on radio stations throughout Australia and internationally, including as pianist of the Benaud Trio, and several have been nominated for an Australian Independent Music Award. Amir is also a recorded artist on the Steinway & Sons Spirio catalogue, as part of the piano manufacturer’s revolutionary player-piano system. As of 2017, Amir also lives and works in New York City, where he works as staff pianist for the Juilliard School and New York Philharmonic, and is pianist with the Exponential Ensemble.
