Welcome to brianganz.com

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to my website.

The English writer Aldous Huxley once said, "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."  It has been my good fortune to spend my life immersed in the world of music, and thus draw closer to the inexpressible.  I hope this website makes it a little easier for you to join me in that world of beauty and mystery.   I invite you to explore the website, and I hope to see you at an upcoming concert!

With warm wishes,
Brian Ganz

Brian Ganz plays Chopin's Scherzo No. 4 in E major

Review by Charles T. Downey in IONARTS

Ganz has become familiar to Washington audiences, especially since an acclaimed series of concerts at Strathmore, still ongoing, in which he is playing the complete works of Chopin. After many trusted ears have directed me to Ganz's playing, I finally had the chance to hear him in person on Sunday night, when he played a recital of music by Beethoven and Debussy at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington in Rockville.Brian Ganz @ JCCGW
