Greg Burk

Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: June 24, 1969    

Pianist/composer/educator Greg Burk has lived, studied, educated and performed around the world.

”...a pianist with a gift for melody and a generous touch that makes you want to like him...”
—LA Weekly

”Burk's touch on the piano remains confident and even, his statements being made with proficiency and concision and without overstatement.”
—Cadence

”With this release, Burk displays a penchant for pursuing lushly melodic themes interspersed with a distinct sense of poise to complement his altogether laudable faculties.
