Bio

 

Nathaniel LaNasa brings his “stormy lyricism” (New York Times) to a wide range of music, playing piano, fortepiano, harpsichord, and electronic media. LaNasa’s “poise and elegance” and “deft sense of precision” (Feast of Music) have been featured in solo appearances with New Juilliard Ensemble, TACTUS, and Music Academy International Festival Orchestra, among others. A curious and passionate performer of contemporary music, he has premiered dozens of works, including three concerti; LaNasa has worked closely with composers Shawn Jaeger, Dimitri Tymoczko, and Scott Wollschleger. A founding member of the Tobias Picker Ensemble, he made premiere recordings of Picker’s chamber works for Tzadik and performed Picker’s “Composer Portrait” at Miller Theatre. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, MoMA, National Sawdust, and (le) Poisson Rouge. Festival appearances include Music Academy of the West, Aspen, and the Institute and Festival for Contemporary Performance. LaNasa is a recent graduate of the Juilliard School, and a 2018 Fellow at Tanglewood Music Center.
