Montreux Jazz/Cole Porter Competition Winner, Dan Tepfer, an acclaimed French/American classical/jazz pianist, who was recently praised for his “brilliant career" in the New York Times, has been performing J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations worldwide. From his sellout concerts at the Kennedy Center, to touring the Czech Republic with the Castle Guard Orchestra: to his appearance at the Atelier de la Main d'Or in Paris; Dan has been performing this new work in public, and -- as befits a musician whose career has been built mainly within the contemporary jazz world20--incorporating improvisation into the mix.

Born in Paris, France, in 1982 to American parents, Tepfer started classical piano studies at the age of six at the Paris Conservatoire Paul Dukas. He soon began to explore improvisation on his own and remaine d largely self-taught in jazz into his college years. After earning a bachelor's in astrophysics from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, where he also played extensively on the jazz scene and enjoy ed a brief stint as an opera conductor, he was offered a scholarship to complete his master's in jazz at the New England Conservatory in Boston under the guidance of Danilo Prez. Graduating with honors in 2005, he moved to New York City, where he is in demand as a pianist, composer and educator.

His work has been recognized with a number of re cent awards, including the first prize and audience prize at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition, the first prize at the 2006 East Coast Jazz Festival Competition, and the first prize at the 2007 competition of the American Pianists Association - leading him to be named the 2007-2009 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
