Pianist Jeffrey Biegel is an exceptional performer and recording artist. A champion of new music, he has organized an unprecedented number of donors and consortiums of orchestras to commission new music. He joined the Springfield Symphony Orchestra (Massachusetts) and the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (West Virginia) with individual donors to sponsor Kenneth Fuchs’s Piano Concerto (‘Spiritualist’).

Biegel performed premieres of the concerto with each orchestra. As pianist of Trio21, Biegel commissioned another Fuchs work, Falling Trio (Naxos 8.559733), which grows out of the theme for Fuchs’s large-scale vocal-orchestral work, Falling Man (Naxos 8.559753), inspired by Don DeLillo’s 2007 post-9/11 novel of the same name. Notable composers whom Biegel has commissioned include William Bolcom, Richard Danielpour, Lowell Liebermann, Jake Runestad, PDQ Bach (Peter Schickele), Christopher Theofanidis, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.

In 1986, Biegel made his New York recital debut in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. At The Juilliard School, while Fuchs was a student there, Biegel studied with the legendary Adele Marcus. He is a faculty member of the Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College at The City University of New York.
