For over 25 years Anne-Marie McDermott has played concertos, recitals and chamber music in hundreds of cities throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. In addition to performing, she also serves as  Artistic Director of the Bravo! Vail Music and Ocean Reef Music Festivals, as well as Curator for Chamber Music for the Mainly Mozart Festival in San Diego. 

The breadth of Ms. McDermott's repertoire reaches from Bach, Haydn and Beethoven to Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Scriabin, to works by today’s most influential composers. In 2015-16 season, Ms. McDermott appeared with the Dallas, Nashville, and Pacific Symphonies, and premiered a new concerto by Poul Ruders with the Vancouver Symphony—a piece she will record alongside Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of  Paganini.  Charles Wuorinen's last solo piano sonata, which she has recorded, was written for her and premiered at New York's Town Hall. 

Ms. McDermott has recorded the complete Prokofiev Piano Sonatas, Bach’s English Suites and Partitas (Editor’s Choice, Gramophone Magazine), solo works by Chopin, and Gershwin’s Complete Works for Piano and Orchestra with the Dallas Symphony (also Editor’s Choice, Gramophone Magazine). In 2013, she released a disc of Mozart Concerti with the Calder Quartet ("exceptional on every count.”—Gramophone). Most recently she recorded five Haydn piano sonatas and two Haydn Concertos with the Odense Philharmonic in Denmark including two cadenzas written by Charles Wuorinen.  

In the upcoming season Ms. McDermott will be participating in the New Century Chamber Orchestra's Silver Jubilee All Gershwin Program, in addition to embarking on a cycle of Beethoven Concertos at Santa Fe Pro Musica. In recent years Ms. McDermott performed Mozart Concerto, K. 595 with the Philadelphia Orchestra led by Donald Runnicles, the Bach D minor concerto with members of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 with the New York City-based Le Train Bleu. In 2012 Ms. McDermott performed Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2 with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Bramwell Tovey.  She also did a west coast tour with award-winning violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and the New Century Chamber Orchestra; the complete Beethoven piano trios with Ida Kavafian and Peter Wiley; and the complete Beethoven cello sonatas with Lynn Harrell.  Other recent international highlights include a performance of Schumann’s piano concerto with the Sao Paulo Symphony at the Cartagena Festival and an all-Haydn recital tour of China.  Ms. McDermott gave special performances of works by Charles Wuorinen in New York and at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., in celebration of the composer’s seventy-fifth birthday. 

Ms. McDermott has performed with many leading orchestra including the New York Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, Dallas Symphony, Columbus Symphony, Seattle Symphony, National Symphony, Houston Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, League of American Composers, Moscow Virtuosi,  Hong Kong Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony, New Jersey Symphony and Baltimore Symphony among others. Ms, McDermott has toured with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Moscow Virtuosi.

 

She is a longtime member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center with whom she performs and tours extensively each season. With CMS she has performed the complete Prokofiev piano sonatas and chamber music, as well as a three-concert series of chamber music by Shostakovich.  Ms. McDermott enjoys touring as a member of OPUS ONE, a chamber group with Ida Kavafian, Steven Tenenbom and Peter Wiley. Together they have commissioned over 15 new works.  She also tours annually violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, and performs as part of a trio with sisters, Kerry and Maureen McDermott. She studied at the Manhattan School of Music and was winner of the Mortimer Levitt Career Development Award for Women, the Young Concert Artists auditions and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Anne-Marie McDermott lives in New York City with her husband, Michael, and her Maltese, Sammy.
