Bilson's performances of music by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert on late 18th- and early 19th-century pianos has restored the fortepiano to the modern concert stage.
He has recorded the major piano literature of the period with John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists, the Academy of Ancient Music with Christopher Hogwood, and Philharmonia Baroque with Nicholas McGegan. He enjoys a rich and varied concert career across five continents.
He is a frequent soloist at the leading festivals, including Mostly Mozart in New York, Mozartwoche in Salzburg, and Early Music Weeks in Budapest, and has just returned from tours of Italy and Switzerland.
Following a performance of Beethoven piano sonatas, The New York Times wrote, "what emerged ? was an unusually clear sense of how revolutionary these works must have sounded in their time."
