“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 (June 2006)
Born outside of Cleveland, then raised in Hinsdale, Massachusetts, and Quincy, Illinois, Jeremy Beck’s music has been described as ”unabashedly tonal, rhythmically intricate, … mak[ing] nods to the past while sitting squarely in the present.” (NewMusicBox, 2012).
Jeremy’s work has been presented by New York City Opera, American Composers Orchestra and the Dallas Festival of Modern Music, among others. Previously a tenured associate professor of music at California State University-Fullerton and the University of Northern Iowa, Jeremy began his musical journey playing the cello in the Quincy public schools. He practices entertainment, general business, and intellectual property (trademark and copyright) law in Louisville, Kentucky.
