“Jeremy Beck is Exhibit A in classical music’s defense against the charge of being out of touch.”
- The best new recordings from North America (Gramophone)
Called “an original voice celebrating music” by MusicWeb International (2009), Jeremy Beck’s music has been described by NewMusicBox (2012) as “rhythmically intricate, and mak[ing] nods to the past while sitting squarely in the present. … Though architecturally rigorous, Beck writes clearly and without pretense[.]” Audiophile Audition (2011) has characterized him as “one of the multi-talented, gifted individuals making … positive contributions to the American new music scene [who] deserves wider recognition[.] … His music is uplifting, buoyant and also soothing, beautiful and a complete pleasure to listen to[.] … I found [his] music to be a revelation[.]”
Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Beck’s music has been presented by New York City Opera, American Composers Orchestra, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Iowa, the Albuquerque Symphony Orchestra, Portland Symphony Orchestra, the Moravian Philharmonic, Center for Contemporary Opera, Peabody Opera, Yale Opera, the Dallas Festival of Modern Music, IonSound Project, Pacific Serenades, the Nevsky String Quartet, the Da Kappo String Quartet, and the San Gabriel String Quartet, among others.
