Joanna MACGREGOR (piano)

Joanna MacGregor is thought of as one of the most in novative musicians and divides her time between playing classical, jazz and contemporary music. She has performed in over fifty countries, often appearing as solo artist with many of the world’s leading orchestras, which have included the New York Philharmonic, London and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, the Oslo and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestras and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The many eminent conductors she has worked with include Pierre Boulez, Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Colin Davis and Michael Tilson Thomas. She has premiered landmark compositions ranging from Harrison Birtwistle and Django Bates to John Adams and James MacMillan.

Her collaborative projects have led her further afield: from touring South Africa with jazz artist Moses Molelekwa, recording with pop artist Talvin Singh, and regularly appearing with saxophonist Andy Sheppard, to a multimedia project Cross Border with Jin Xing’s Contemporary Dance Theatre of Shanghai.

Joanna MacGregor made her conducting début with the Britten Sinfonia in 2002, and regularly directs her own orchestra projects, the most recent being the Moondog/Art of Fugue tour — a radical re-working of Bach’s late great work, alongside the music of the famous 50’s New York street musician. Joanna MacGregor is Artistic Director of the Bath International Music Festival.
