The Piano Series presents guest artist Geoffrey Burleson.  His program will feature works by Saint-Saëns, UC Davis professor Laurie San Martin's "Dances for Solo Piano", and Liszt's "Dante Sonata". Burelson has performed to wide acclaim throughout Europe and North America, and is equally active as a recitalist, concerto soloist, chamber musician and jazz performer. The New York Times has hailed his solo performances as "vibrant" and "compelling", and has praised his "command, projection of rhapsodic qualities without loss of rhythmic vigor, and appropriate sense of spontaneity and fetching colors".

Mr. Burleson made his New York City solo recital debut at Merkin Concert Hall in 2000, sponsored by the League of Composers/ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music.) He has appeared as concerto soloist with numerous orchestras and ensembles, including the Buffalo Philharmonic, New England Philharmonic, Boston Musica Viva, Pioneer Valley Symphony, Arlington Philharmonic, and the Holland Symfonia in the Netherlands, performing repertoire ranging from Mozart, Weber and Saint-Saens to Gershwin and Klaas de Vries. 

Mr. Burleson was winner of the Silver Medal in the International Piano Recording Competition, and won Special Commendations in the Vienna Modern Masters International Performers Competition. He was also the recipient of a DAAD grant from the German government to support a residency at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. He is a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory, New England Conservatory, and Stony Brook University (D.M.A.). Currently, Mr. Burleson is recording the complete piano works of Camille Saint-Saens, being released on 5 CD volumes on the new Naxos Grand Piano label
