Dinner with Jake Cohen
Natasha Paremski
Performer and Artistic Director
“Simply a phenomenal performer, with a titanic keyboard technique and the artistic vision to go with it,” (San Francisco Chronicle) pianist Natasha Paremski is a regular return guest of many major orchestras, including Minnesota Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Grant Park Music Festival, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of conductors including Thomas Dausgaard, Peter Oundjian, Andres Orozco-Estrada, Jeffrey Kahane, JoAnn Falletta, Rossen Milanov, and Andrew Litton.

Natasha has given recitals at the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, Wigmore Hall, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Tokyo’s Musashino Performing Arts Center and San Francisco’s Herbst Theater, among others.

Natasha’s range as a performer has often extended beyond the traditional concert hall. She was the featured pianist in choreographer Benjamin Millepied’s Danses Concertantes at New York’s Joyce Theater, as well as in a major two-part film for BBC Television on the life and work of Tchaikovsky. She collaborated in Twin Spirits, a theatrical project starring Sting and Trudie Styler. A Steinway Artist, she has recorded several works for the brand’s revolutionary new Spirio technology.
