In 2015, Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters upon Jeffrey Biegel for his achievements as a pianist, recording artist, chamber music collaborator, champion of new piano music, composer, arranger and educator. His recordings include The Complete Piano Sonatas of Mozart, and works by Lucas Richman, Steve Barta, William Bolcom, Dick Tunney, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, and Kenneth Fuchs, as well as his own version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons for solo piano, César Cui’s 25 Preludes, and compositions of Carolyne Taylor. In 1997 he created and performed the first live audio/video recitals on the internet from historic Steinway Hall in New York, a CD recording of which is preserved bearing the website name at the time, ‘cyberecital.com’. As a pioneer of projects joining large numbers of orchestras as a model for commissioning new music in the 21st century, Jeffrey Biegel assembled a record-setting consortium of 27 orchestras in 1998 for Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Millennium Fantasy, premièred by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 2000, followed by Tony award-winning composer Charles Strouse’s Concerto America with the Boston Pops, conducted by Keith Lockhart in 2002. In 2010 Jeffrey Biegel performed the world premère of William Bolcom’s Prometheus for piano, orchestra and chorus, with Carl St.Clair leading the Pacific Symphony Orchestra and Pacific Chorale, followed by performances with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin, and the Calgary Philharmonic and Chorus representing Canada. In addition he gave the world première of Richard Danielpour’s Mirror with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, Carl St.Clair conducting. Premières also include Lowell Liebermann’s Concerto No. 3, Op. 95, and Jake Runestad’s Dreams of the Fallen. Jeffrey Biegel’s choral music is published by the Hal Leonard Corporation, Carl Fischer, Porfiri & Horvath and The LeDor Group.
