Bryan Pezzone is probably the consummate crossover pianist of his generation. He excels in classical, contemporary, jazz, and experimental genres and is known for both his versatility and virtuosity as a performing artist, improviser and composer. He has performed as soloist with many major symphony orchestras, has toured widely with the jazz/classical crossover group "Free Flight", and is known in the Los Angeles area as one of the primary freelance pianists for film and television soundtracks. He is also a consulting editor for the well-known publication "Piano and Keyboard" where he writes articles about improvisation and creative approaches to careers in music.
Bryan Pezzone received the Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music where he was awarded the Performers Certificate and won the concerto competition. Bryan also attended the Banff Centre as an alternative to graduate studies in order to have the necessary time to freely blend various aesthetics and diverse performance traditions into a unique approach. This passion remains the focus of his work and continues to evolve.
