Leslie Amper


One of today's most dynamic pianists, Leslie Amper is a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalist Fellowship grant for her stalwart efforts in celebration of the distinguished French composer Olivier Messiaen's 80th birthday. After giving the Boston premiere of Vingt Regards sur l'Enfant Jesus, Ms. Amper went on to offer further performances of this Messiaen piano masterpiece in New York, Washington and Pittsburgh.

Leslie Amper made her New York recital debut in April 1986 at Weill (then, Carnegie) Recital Hall and has returned to New York for annual performances since. In July 1989, she participated in Carnegie Hall's series of recreations of landmark jazz concerts of the past. She has also performed in solo recitals and chamber music in Chicago, San Francisco, at Washington's Kennedy Center and at the Schonberg Institute in Vienna. Ms. Amper appeared with the PSO at age 14 and again in 1983.

A Pittsburgh native, Ms. Amper graduated with distinction from the New England Conservatory of Music. She currently is on the faculty of the Longy School of Music, is a music tutor at Harvard University, and teaches at the New England Conservatory Preparatory.

Recent engagements include a performance with the Boston Pops Orchestra; recitals at Washington's Phillips Collection and in Pittsburgh. Ms. Amper is a member of the Jubilee Trio.
