About the Performer
Equally at home in front of a harpsichord, organ, piano, or fortepiano, David Schrader is “truly an extraordinary musician ... [who] brings not only the unfailing right technical approach to each of these different instruments, but always an imaginative, fascinating musicality to all of them” (Norman Pelligrini, WFMT, Chicago). A performer with wide-ranging interests and accomplishments, Mr. Schrader has performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, and Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
