Hailed in reviews as “wonderfully poetic” and “compelling in his power and presence,” Nathan Carterette has distinguished himself in the concert world by performing an immense range of works from Elizabethan keyboard music to the music of today. His innovative programming has inspired audiences to approach unfamiliar music with open ears, and familiar music with new appreciation.
Performances have taken him to Weill Recital Hall and the Yamaha Piano Salon of New York City, the Gasteig in Munich, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe of Hamburg, and Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral. He has been presented by many conservatories and universities including the Berklee School of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, Radford University, Kent State University, Baldwin Wallace Conservatory, and Carnegie Mellon University.
