Biography
For over forty years, Jaime Laredo has made a name for himself as a soloist, conductor, and chamber musician. His musical personality has been strongly influenced by the teaching of such musicians as J. Gingold, P. Casals, I. Galamian, and G. Szell. At the age of 17 Jaime Laredo was awarded First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition and embarked upon his international career. He has since performed as soloist or conductor with the world’s leading orchestras. He has worked under such conductors as D. Barenboim, Z. Mehta, S. Ozawa, L. Slatkin, C. Davis, E. Ormandy, L. Stokowski, and G. Szell. He also regularly performs publicly as a member of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio and with his wife, the cellist Sharon Robinson. Jaime Laredo has recorded almost 100 discs, a number of which have been awarded prizes. For example, the recording of the Brahms piano quartets with his usual partners E. Ax, I. Stern, and Yo-Yo Ma won a Grammy Award. As artistic director of the chamber music series of the Y in New York, he has developed an important forum centered on chamber music. He has also been greatly involved in educational projects such as the Marlboro Music Festival, the Aspen Music Festival, and the Tanglewood Festival.
