About this Event

About the artist: Jeffrey LaDeur

Praised for his “delicate keyboard touch and rich expressivity" (San Francisco Chronicle) and playing that is “deeply moving, probing, entirely felt as in the moment” (Eduard Laurel) Jeffrey LaDeur performs worldwide from the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to the San Francisco Jazz Center, from the Shanghai Conservatory to the Orlando Festival in the Netherlands. LaDeur is founder and artistic director of New Piano Collective and the San Francisco International Piano Festival.

In 2015, LaDeur began a survey of Debussy’s complete solo piano music in the context of his influences and inspirations, culminating in an acclaimed debut recital at Carnegie Hall on the centennial of Debussy’s death. His debut album, featuring works by Debussy and Rameau, was released on MSR Classics and has been hailed as “a masterpiece of understatement, simplicity, and ‘old school’ chord-playing where every note sings out with meaning” (Gramophone).

​As soloist with orchestra, Jeffrey maintains a repertoire of over forty concerti. Conductors with whom he has collaborated include George Cleve, Michael Morgan, Barbara Day Turner, Lawrence Golan, and Ming Luke.

A passionate chamber musician, LaDeur has concertized internationally with the Delphi Trio. The Trio received the dedication of William Bolcom’s first Piano Trio, the world premiere recording of which was released on Triptych (MSR Classics) along with trios by Beethoven and Brahms. Jeffrey has collaborated with artists such as Robert Mann, Bonnie Hampton, Geoff Nuttall, Ian Swensen, Anne Akiko Meyers, Toby Appel, David Requiro, and the Alexander, Telegraph, and Afiara Quartets.

​LaDeur holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and San Francisco Conservatory of Music in piano performance and chamber music, respectively. Jeffrey counts among his teachers Mark Edwards, Douglas Humpherys, Yoshikazu Nagai, and Robert McDonald. Jeffrey received his formative musical training from pianist Annie Sherter, a student of Vlado Perlemuter and Alfred Cortot.
