Encyclopedia > Phillip Bush

Phillip Bush is an American classical pianist, with a career focusing primarily on chamber music and contemporary classical music. He was winner of the 1983 American Pianists' Association national competition and made his New York recital debut in 1984 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a soloist, Bush has championed the work of many living composers, and has recorded piano works of Ben Johnston and John Zorn among others. Bush is a regular at various chamber music festivals throughout the United States, and has collaborated with many major American instrumentalists. His work as a "sideman" in chamber and contemporary recording sessions currently stands at some thirty recordings on various labels including Virgin Classics, Sony, Koch International, Denon, and New World Records, with groups such as the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. In the contemporary music field, Bush has been a keyboardist with Philip Glass' ensemble dating back to 1987, and also with the ensemble of composer Steve Reich since 1986. Bush has also been the official pianist for Milwaukee's Present Music contemporary group since the mid-1990's. Other long group associations included a stint from 1992 to 1999 with the classical crossover piano quartet "Typhoon," led by violinist Iwao Furusawa and immensely popular in Japan through the 90's with several top-selling CD's. In 2001 Bush made his Carnegie Hall solo concerto debut on short notice, replacing an ailing Peter Serkin as soloist with the London Sinfonietta in concerti by Stravinsky and Alexander Goehr to critical acclaim. Bush's efforts on behalf of contemporary American music have earned him awards and grants from the Aaron Copland Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts.
