Adam Berenson

Classically-influenced jazz pianist/composer Adam Berenson has been described by author and Juilliard professor David Dubal as:

“what is needed in our over specialized society-- a true polyartist-- Pianist, Playwright, Composer, Teacher, Humanist, and a man to get to know because in his smooth, respectful style, Mr. Berenson has a lot to show and tell us about art, behavior, and the ability to survive with humor in a harsh and rough time where we have decided art is not of utmost importance.”

Mr. Berenson's music reflects a wide range of influences, including Keith Jarrett, Eric Satie, Anton Webern, Ornette Coleman, Helmut Lachenmann, Gary Burton and Gyorgy Ligeti. Accessible and challenging, tonal and non-tonal, Mr. Berenson's music ranges from minimal cool expressionism to an unbridled romanticism.
