Lauded for “superb playing” and “poised, alert musicianship” by The Boston Globe and labeled “definitely a man to watch” by London’s The Independent, American pianist SPENCER MYER is one of the most respected and sought-after artists on today’s concert stages.
Adding to his North American credentials, Spencer Myer includes in his current season another collaboration with conductor Lucas Richman, this time with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and a return to Ohio’s Springfield Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Peter Stafford Wilson, and a multi-recital tour of Canada’s Nova Scotia. His solo recitals and chamber music collaborations take him throughout the United States, and he continues as half of the Daurov/Myer Duo, having teamed up with the award-winning cellist Adrian Daurov in 2012.
