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 four-disc set of the solo piano works of David Del Tredici is in process with Albany Records. A native of Rhode Island, Peloquin received his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Manhattan School of Music with additional studies at Boston University, the New England Conservatory and Tanglewood. 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.
