Myra Melford, piano
For pianist, composer and Guggenheim fellow Myra Melford,
the personal and the poetic have always been intimately connected.
Raised outside Chicago in a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright,
Melford grew up literally surrounded by art, seeing early on that
aesthetic expression could both be built from and be a structure
for profound emotions. Her work draws inspiration from a vast
spectrum of cultural and spiritual traditions and artistic disciplines.
Recent projects include the multimedia Language of Dreams for her
ensemble Snowy Egret; a duo with clarinetist Ben Goldberg; and Trio
M with bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson.
