Born in 1962, Korevaar has studied with the eminent American virtuosos Earl Wild and Abbey Simon, as well as with the remarkable Paul Doguereau. Along with a strong interest in new music, he performs from a wide repertoire of standard works of the last 300 years, and loves to explore some less-known nooks of the literature as well. Frequent forays into turn of the century music by Faure and Reger, as well as exploration of the solo piano works of Hindemith, Dohnanyi and others has been a hallmark of his programming since his New York debut at Town Hall in 1985 -- which was greeted by an enthusiastic review in the late-lamented Musical America by Faubion Bowers.
Honors and awards have included top prizes from the Peabody-Mason Foundation, and the William Kapell Competition, as well as a special prize for his performances of French Music from the Casadesus Competition. He is a member of the Prometheus Piano Quartet, and for many years performed as a member of Hexagon, winners of the Young Concert Artists Award.
Korevaar teaches at the University of Bridgeport, the Westport School of Music, and is currently completing studies for his Doctor of Musical Arts Degree at Juilliard.
