Pianist Raj Bhimani’s concerts are “virtuosic, heartfelt and eloquent,” writes New York Times critic Michael Kimmelman.  Time Out NY noted him for being a “gifted and highly expressive pianist.”  Mr. Bhimani performs across North America, Europe, and India, and appears regularly at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.  He is a champion of new music and has developed particular expertise in French literature.

Composer Henri Dutilleux declared him “a great artist who plays with sensitivity and intelligence,” and Thérèse Brenet, who was moved by Mr. Bhimani’s performance of her earlier work, composed six works especially for him which were all premiered in the 21st Century.  He has released four solo CDs, one of which includes works of Ms. Brenet.  Others are dedicated to late works of Schubert and Brahms respectively, while the most recent contains music of Ravel. He is a member of Syrinx : XXII, a chamber music group formed with two musicians from Portugal, and is also a regular contributor to Serenade Magazine.
