David Arner

Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: November 4, 1951    

Pianist, percussionist and composer David Arner is a long time proponent of innovative music and spontaneous composition. A resident of New York’s Mid-Hudson valley, the Woodstock Times has hailed him as “one of the Valley’s most consistently inventive and stimulating musical improvisors.” Arner released his 1st CD, Solo Piano (Dogstar), in 2002. The album documents Arner’s ongoing series of spontaneous compositions for solo piano, both in concert and in the studio, applying his characteristic piano wizardry to a wide array of themes from mythology to the blues. Paul Elisha of Northeast Public Radio said of this CD that Arner “holds and transports listeners through the incredible maze of his seemingly unflagging imagination.” David Arner’s 2nd CD, Live from the Center (Dogstar 2005), features his solo piano music from one of his annual concerts at The Center for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck. Cadence Magazine’s Frank Rubolino said of this CD that Arner is “an intense, introspective pianist who methodically constructs sound portraits of shattering dimensions... Inspiration comes in waves of light… Arner is a discerning musician who retreats inwardly to project his obsessions externally. His process will transfix and awe.”...

“His touch was delicate and purposeful, intended for drawing an atmosphere and breaking it apart. His touch caused the sound to pulsate like groups of binary stars and whir like intergalactic dust winds.” JazzReview.com 2003
