Evan Shinners

Juilliard grad­uate Evan Shinners has been playing the piano since he was nine and made his orches­tral debut when he was a mere twelve years old, with the Utah Symphony.
But the Bach-loving New Yorker is not your average clas­sical musi­cian. In his own words, he claims to reclaim “the unex­pect­ed­ness and spon­taneity that [he] feels the tra­di­tional clas­sical music con­cert has lost."

In addi­tion to having appeared at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, the Museum of Modern Art, and other pres­ti­gious venues around the world, he is a pub­lished poet, leads a band that pounds away at aggres­sive pop music in smaller clubs.
His debut album, @Bach, was acclaimed as “essen­tial” by the Huffington Post, and described by the same as "one of the brat­tiest Bach record­ings to come along since Glenn Gould him­self.”
