About the Carol Enger

“Lauded for her sensitive, nuanced playing, American pianist Carolyn Enger is a musician who consistently entrances her audiences. Anthony Tommasini – Chief Music Critic of The New York Times wrote “This year the classical music critics of The New York Times had plenty of options when selecting their favorite recordings of 2013….Among the 90th Birthday tributes this year to the essential American composer Ned Rorem, this recording especially stands out. The fine pianist Carolyn Enger plays Mr. Rorem’s complete Piano Album l, a collection of tender yet pungent miniatures written for friends, intimates and personal occasions from 1978-2001.”

“In the New York area she has delivered her distinctly personal concerts at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Bruno Walter Auditorium, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, Spectrum and the Tenri Cultural Center.
