Introducing David Schrader

Notes by Cedille Records

Born in Chicago in 1952, David Schrader receiver his Performer’s Certificate (1975), Masters (1976), and Doctor of Music Degree (1987) from Indiana University and is now a Professor at Roosevelt University’s College of the Performing Arts. A familiar figure to audiences in the Windy City, the multifaceted Schrader has been hailed for his performances of baroque and classical repertoire on harpsichord and fortepiano, and music of vastly divergent styles and eras on organ and piano. Mr. Schrader has appeared in recital and performed with major orchestras throughout North America, Europe, and Japan, including appearances as soloists with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under such celebrated conductors as Daniel Barenboim, Claudio Abbado, Erich Leinsdorf, and Sir Georg Solt, with whom Schrader has made three recordings for London Records. David Schrader is currently organist at Chicago’s Church of the Ascension and a member of the Chicago Baroque Ensemble.
