Amy Dorfman

Pianist Amy Dorfman has enjoyed a wide variety of musical collaborations throughout her illustrious career. For over twenty years, she has collaborated with the great American bass virtuoso, Edgar Meyer, performing in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. In 2002, she and colleagues Carolyn Huebl, violin, and Felix Wang, cello, formed the Blakemore Trio and have been touring the country and recording ever since. The trio performed their New York debut in Merkin Hall in 2010. In 2013 the trio released two recordings, The Blakemore Trio plays Beethoven and Ravel (Blue Griffin Records), and Gates of Silence, composed by Susan Botti and commissioned for the Blakemore Trio (Albany Records). Their most recent cd release is "The Blakemore Trio Plays Music of Adam Schoenberg" on Blue Griffin Records. Dorfman’s playing has been described as having “a rich, full tone and remarkable range of colors...musicality that is inner-directed and highly sensitized to not only the letter but the spirit of the music.” (Fanfare Magazine)
