Praised for his "glowing sound”, “assured virtuosity" (San Francisco Classical Voice) and “dazzling pianism” (Sarasota Herald Tribune) Jeffrey LaDeur enjoys a busy career as soloist, chamber musician, and educator. LaDeur’s spontaneity, tone color, and sense of architecture, have distinguished him as an artist of international caliber. Engagements at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Shanghai Conservatory, Eastman Theater, Banff Centre, and other prestigious venues were followed by an invitation from the Naumburg Foundation to make his Carnegie Hall debut. LaDeur is pianist and founding member of the acclaimed Delphi Trio, and Founder and Artistic Director of New Piano Collective, an artistic alliance between pianists of international renown.
As soloist with orchestra, Jeffrey maintains a repertoire of over forty concerti. Recent performances include appearances with the Oakland Symphony, San Jose Chamber Orchestra, the Denver Philharmonic, Merced Symphony, and members of the South Dakota Symphony. LaDeur is frequently heard in recital at venues such as PianoForte Chicago, Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society, Dakota Sky International Piano Festival, and he returns to Carnegie’s Weill Hall to culminate his survey of Debussy’s solo piano music, its influences and inspirations, on the anniversary of the composer’s death in March, 2018. Jeffrey’s debut album featuring works by Rameau and Debussy, will be released on the MSR Classics in summer of 2017.
After an auspicious debut with the Eastman Philharmonia in César Franck's Variations Symphoniques during his first semester of study at the Eastman School of Music, Jeffrey completed his B.M. in piano performance, studying with Douglas Humpherys. LaDeur earned his M.M. in chamber music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music studying with Yoshikazu Nagai and completed additional studies with Robert McDonald. Jeffrey received his formative musical training from Mark Edwards and Annie Sherter, a student of Vlado Perlemuter and Alfred Cortot.
