Since entering the Curtis Institute of Music at the age of eleven, Serkin has built an illustrious international performance career. Throughout his career he has successfully conveyed the essence of five centuries of repertoire and his performances with symphony orchestras, recital appearances, chamber music collaborations and recordings are respected worldwide.
