Spencer Myer, piano
Lauded for “superb playing” and “poised, alert musicianship” by the Boston Globe, SPENCER MYER is one of the most respected pianists on today’s concert stage. He has been soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Johannesburg Philharmonic and Beijing’s China National Symphony Orchestra, and in 2014 he made his second appearance at London’s Wigmore Hall.
Winner of the First Prize in the 2008 New Orleans and 2004 UNISA (South Africa) International Piano Competitions, as well as the American Pianists Association’s 2006 Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship, he was a member of Astral Artists from 2003 to 2010. An avid chamber musician, he has collaborated with the Jupiter and Pacifica quartets, the Dorian Wind Quintet, cellists Lynn Harrell and Ralph Kirshbaum, and clarinetist David Shifrin.
Spencer Myer is Artist-Teacher of Piano and Collaborative Piano at the Longy School or Music of Bard College, and his latest CD — selected rags of William Bolcom — will be released this fall on the Steinway & Sons label. For more information, visit www.spencermyer.com.
