Philip D Zach
with special guests: Jessica Hansen & Molly Rezich
Philip Daniel Zach is a composer, pianist, and teacher from Lincoln, Nebraska. Zach did his graduate work at the UMKC Conservatory in Piano Performance and his undergraduate studies at Hastings College, where he earned a Bachelor’s in Piano Performance and Piano Pedagogy.
During his undergraduate years, Philip discovered a passion for creating his own music. He was heavily inspired by contemporary classical composers such as Olafur Arnalds, NIls Frahm, Philip Glass, Max Richter and more by their ability to transmit powerful emotions thru simplistic, minimalistic sound while each possessing their own unique “voice” in a non-cliche manner. Zach aims to follow in these musicians footsteps by blending aspects of classical music, minimalism, cinematic qualities, and more. He seeks to appeal to the seasoned, trained musician as well as the normal, non-musically inclined listener in a way that can impact both.
“Philip Daniel will be joined in concert by Jessica Hansen (violin) and Molly Rezich (cello) at the Lark in Hastings on July 13th. Jessica and Molly are both on faculty at the Omaha Conservatory and are active performers as well. Instead of writing out parts, Jessica and Molly will bring their own renditions thru improvisation to Philip Daniel’s pieces resulting in a fresh and spontaneous performance. Philip will be performing a wide array of works from his 3 albums as well as unreleased works, consisting of minimalist/ethereal piano contrasted with virtuosic piano works as well.”
