“One of the moment’s most adventurous and relevant musicians.”

New York Magazine

Dan Tepfer has earned accolades for his beautiful musicianship and innovative approach to the concert experience around the world. His style is rooted in Jazz, and expressed through exciting use of technology. Natural Machines is a concert experience that is a feast for the eyes and ears.

Tepfer has earned an international reputation as a pianist-composer of wide-ranging innovation, individuality, and drive—one “who refuses to set himself limits” (France’s Télérama). The New York City-based Tepfer, born in 1982 in Paris to American parents, has recorded and performed around the world with some of the leading lights in jazz and classical music, from Lee Konitz to Renée Fleming, and released eleven albums of his own in solo, duo and trio formats.
