Frequency Series Presents
Pianist Nicholas Phillips has been a champion of new music for the past decade, in both live performances and CD recordings. His #45miniatures Project features the work of over 50 composers who each wrote a piece in response to President Trump’s policies, actions, tweets, speeches, and administration in general.
“a talented, entrepreneurial pianist” and “an able and persuasive advocate throughout” — Steve Smith, The New York Times
“Truly a postmodern pianist” — Doyle Armbrust, TimeOut Chicago
“Nicholas Phillips’s playing is razor-sharp yet wonderfully spirited, tossing off the most demanding passages with just the offhand aplomb needed to make them at once effortless (as the composer intended) and tonally resplendent” — Lehman, American Record Guide
