Renowned pianist Marc Peloquin has recently finished recording all of David Del Tredici’s piano music for Albany Records, creating a jaw-dropping 4-CD set!
–>David Del Tredici<– is a national treasure, a larger than life figure with a knack for the grand gesture and very often, the outrageous gesture.
“All the way from Orchestra Hall to the parking garage patrons could be heard humming snatches of the music and expressing their delight. It was the most enthusiastic reception of a new work that I have ever heard at a symphony concert.” – Thomas Willis, Chicago Tribune
Late in the Game
All the works on this program were given their first performances by Marc Peloquin, and
S/M Ballade was commissioned by Marc Peloquin.
A New York Times critic recently declared pianist Marc Peloquin’s “energetic approach yielded a performance that was refreshing and alive. Individual lines rang out with remarkable definition and clarity…” Appearances have taken him from the Palacio de Belles Artes in Mexico City, the American Academy in Rome, Germany’s Darmstadt Festival and the Cultural Center of Roubaix, France, to New York City spaces including Merkin Concert Hall, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and Bargemusic. A refined and sensitive chamber musician, he and fellow pianist Roberto Hidalgo are the dynamic ensemble Split Second.
Marc Peloquin’s debut CD, works for solo piano of Otto Leuning, is available on the CRI label. Currently, a 3-disc set of the solo piano works of David Del Tredici is in process with Naxos Records. A native of Rhode Island, Marc received his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Manhattan School of Music with additional studies at Boston University, the New England Conservatory and Tangelwood. He is visiting lecturer at the New School University, a Resident Teaching Artist at the Bloomingdale School of Music and resides in New York City.
