A Season at the Juilliard School - David Garvey - Netflix

David William Garvey (1922 – February 14, 1995) was an American pianist and academic. He is known as the regular accompanist of Leontyne Price and other performers, including violinists Itzhak Perlman, Michael Rabin and Wanda Wiłkomirska.

Garvey recorded the three Violin Sonatas by Frederick Delius with Wanda Wiłkomirska in 1987. A review in Gramophone noted that their rendition was the best of this music until then, saying: “Both ... have the secret of preserving the music's heartbeat and keeping it moving forward, no matter how slow the tempo might be, and however flexibly they may phrase within a basic pulse.” A recording of the first recital that Leontyne Price gave at Carnegie Hall on 28 February 1965 was issued first in 2002, and reviewed as exceptional. The program included a variety of styles, mostly unfamiliar repertory: arias from operas by Handel, Giordano, Puccini and Cilea, songs by Johannes Brahms, Francis Poulenc, Samuel Barber and Lee Hoiby, spirituals and Gershwin's “Summertime”. While a reviewer described the singer's part in detail, he summarily acknowledged that “Miss Price is sensitively accompanied throughout by David Garvey – a true musical partnership, this”.
