Donald Berman has been on the frontlines of new music scholarship, performance and recording for over 30 years. A pianist and scholar of exceptional gifts, he is currently President of the Charles Ives Society and General Editor of the recently published multi-volume Charles E. Ives: Shorter Works for Piano. From 1998-2008 Mr. Berman curated an immense project which ultimately resulted in a highly praised series of four concerts of unknown and under-appreciated American music at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and a subsequent 4-CD set, Americans in Rome. The repertoire on his recording Scott Wheeler: Portraits & Tributes was performed at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust and later broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today. Performance highlights in recent years, at such venues as Bargemusic, Le Poisson Rouge, Jordan Hall,  and Rockport Music Festival, have focused primarily on solo and chamber music repertoire, combining familiar works by icons of the standard repertoire like Scarlatti, Fauré, Chopin, Copland, Bloch, Schubert, Poulenc, Rieger, Kagel and Schoenberg with premieres and seldom performed works by Stucky, Wyner, Chang, Theofanidis, Saariaho, McDonald, Boulez, Cage, Schoenfield, Harbison, Zare, Lieberson, Lerdahl and many others. Mr. Berman's recordings can be found on Accurate, ARSIS Audio, Bridge, CRI, Capstone Records, Centaur, Koch, Naxos, New World, Newport Classics and Summitt.  A Harvard Radcliffe Institute Fellow, Mr. Berman  serves as Chair of Keyboard Studies at The Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
