Joseph Moog’s ability to combine exquisite technical skill with a mature and intelligent musicality set him apart as a pianist of exceptional diversity. A champion of the well-known masterworks as well as rare and forgotten repertoire combined with the ability to compose and arrange his own works, Joseph was awarded the accolade of Gramophone Young Artist of the Year 2015 and was also GRAMMY nominated for his 2016 recording pairing the Grieg and Moszkowski concertos.
Joseph is a regular performer at specialist piano forums such as the Ruhr Klavierfestival and the Gilmore Keyboard Festival, his passion for diverse repertoire also apparent from recent concerto performances which range from Jerzy Gablenz’ Concerto in D flat major Op. 25 with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the Hallé Orchestra.
Highlights of Joseph’s 2018/19 season include Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 5 with the Orchestre de Chambre du Luxembourg, Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and his debuts in Norway with the Kristiansand Symfoniorkester and Oslo Opera Orchestra. He will also return to Asia for his debut with the New Japan Philharmonic playing Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2, the work with which he made his Asian debut at the Hong Kong Sinfonietta in 2016. Further ahead Joseph returns to North America for his debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Joseph has an extensive discography – November 2017 saw the release of his eleventh recording featuring Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 and Strauss’ Burleske. It will be followed by his much-anticipated recording of Debussy’s complete Etudes and Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit to be released in November 2018.
