Adam Tendler is a recipient of the Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists and "currently the hottest pianist on the American contemporary classical scene" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), a "remarkable and insightful musician" (LA Times), and "relentlessly adventurous pianist" (Washington Post) "joyfully rocking out at his keyboard" (New York Times).

An internationally recognized interpreter of living, modern, and classical composers, and a pioneer of DIY culture in concert music, at age 23 Tendler performed solo recitals in all 50 states as part of a grassroots tour called America 88x50, the subject of his acclaimed memoir, 88x50.

He has gone on to become one of classical and contemporary music's most recognized and celebrated artists, appearing recently as soloist with the LA Philharmonic and on the main-stages of Carnegie Hall and Brooklyn Academy of Music.
