“Roger Davidson is a masterful pianist…He knows the literature of his instrument and he works with it and builds on it. Beautiful, imaginative, and transformative.” – Jack Goodstein
Commonly termed a classical artist, Roger Davidson has developed a fearlessly eclectic reach, both as a composer and pianist. Roger’s acclaimed catalog ranges from chamber, symphonic, and choral pieces to jazz, tango, Klezmer, children’s music, a wide span of Latin and Brazilian projects. He started playing piano at four, and taking violin lessons at eight. Following his university education, Roger, at the suggestion of early baroque music scholar Sidney Beck, went to Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, where he began writing choral music and earned a master’s degree in choral conducting in 1985. Roger then began a professional jazz career when he attended the Stanford Jazz Workshop at Stanford University in California, studying under visiting teachers Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, and James Moody. As a jazz pianist, Roger went on to be mentored by Helen Keane, who later produced his first jazz album.
