Benjamin Laude

 Pianist Benjamin Laude holds both master's and doctorate degrees from The Juilliard School, as well as a bachelor’s degree from Rice University's Shepherd School of Music. As a soloist, Laude has been engaged across the country, including appearances in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall. The New York Times described his solo performance of Steve Reich’s Piano Phase as “an amazing, absorbing feat,” and praised his playing of Shostakovich and Stravinsky as “superb in pace, tone, and eloquence.” An accomplished writer, Laude received the 2010 Juilliard Journal Award for his contributions to the school's official newspaper, and in 2012 founded The Yard, the first independent, student-run publication of its kind at Juilliard. His writings on music and society have been published in International Piano magazine, Jacobin magazine, and Yuga Cohler’s State of Art blog. Laude is also a dedicated pedagogue, holding a private studio in Manhattan while maintaining teaching positions at School for Strings and Bard College/Conservatory.
