Gregory Maytan has been praised for his ‘infectious vitality’ and for his ‘lyrical freshness’ by The Strad, who also awarded his CD of Scandinvian music with the distinction of CD of the Month. The Nordsee Zeitung, Strings Magazine and the American Record Guide have also reviewed Maytan’s performances favorably.
Maytan has performed virtually all the major violin concertos with orchestra, and regularly performs in recitals and concerts in Europe and the US. He has performed on the Dame Myra Hess series, and also at venues such as Ravinia and Tanglewood. He has also performed in Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan and China.
Maytan has been nominated for a Grammis award (Swedish Grammy) and has had his CD receive the distinction of ‘Classical CD of the Year’ by Hifi Magazine. He has also completed a Fulbright Specialist Grant at the Norwegian Academy of Music.
Maytan performs on a 1683 Giovanni Grancino violin, generously loaned to him by the Jarnaker foundation, administered by the Swedish Royal Academy of Music. He graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music as a student of Miriam Fried, Alexander Kerr and Paul Biss.
