Jacob Greenberg

Brooklyn, NY   

Pianist Jacob Greenberg’s work as a soloist and chamber musician has earned worldwide acclaim. He is a longtime member of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), with whom he has performed throughout the Americas and Europe. Mr. Greenberg’s solo concert series, Music at Close Range, shows his equal commitment to classics of the repertoire. His solo discs on New Focus Recordings have received warm critical praise, and he has also recorded for the Bridge, Naxos, Mode, Kairos, Centaur, Tzadik, and New Amsterdam labels. A leading pianist of modern song, he has toured extensively with soprano Tony Arnold; their 2013 recording of Olivier Messiaen’s Harawi has been singled out by critics. Recent highlights include a guest performance of works of György Kurtág at the Darmstadt Summer Courses, and a recital tour with flutist Claire Chase. At Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, he performed Harrison Birtwistle’s Slow Frieze with ICE and conductor Ludovic Morlot, and premiered new solo works by Nathan Davis and Amy Williams. Upcoming events this season include recitals in New York and Chicago pairing Beethoven with Helmut Lachenmann’s Serynade. Mr. Greenberg is also a recording producer, and has completed many discs for major domestic and international labels. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. www.jacobgreenberg.net.
