He gives solo recitals in Chicago, Kansas City, Miami, Princeton, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., as well as at Duke University.

Mr. Gerstein records for Myrios Classics and his recording of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin was released in March 2015; it is the first recording using the new critical edition of the Tchaikovsky concerto using the composer’s original second version, which Mr. Gerstein will be performing in these concerts.
