Milton Schlosser | Piano
Camrose pianist Milton Schlosser is a noted and award-winning music professor at Canada’s University of Alberta. The Toronto Star’s review of Milton’s latest CD exemplifies the type of artistry he is known for, acclaiming his playing for its “emotionally expressive, powerfully intimate journeys through beautiful harmonies and counterpoint.”
Milton performs in live and broadcast performances as solo recitalist, collaborative pianist, and soloist with orchestra. In 2014, solo recital engagements took him to China, Ireland, and France, with other recent performances having occurred in Canada, Germany, the US, and Japan. He has released five recordings that feature him as a soloist and collaborative pianist performing pieces drawn from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries. Two of the recordings highlight works by renowned American composer Frederic Rzewski, including one piece commissioned by Milton. He holds a Doctor of Music degree in piano performance from the University of Alberta, where his primary mentors were Robert Stangeland and Stéphane Lemelin.
