Pianist/composer, Marcus Roberts, has been hailed “the genius of the modern piano”. In 2014, the

celebrated CBS News television show, 60 Minutes, profiled his life and work on a segment entitled

“The Virtuoso”. The show traced Roberts’ life to date from his early roots in Jacksonville and at

the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind to his remarkable career as a modern jazz musician.

Roberts’ critically-acclaimed legacy of recorded music reflects this tremendous artistic versatility.

His recordings include solo piano, duets, and trio arrangements of jazz standards as well as original

suites of music for trio, large ensembles, and symphony orchestra. His popular DVD recording with

the Berlin Philharmonic showcases his ground-breaking arrangement of Gershwin's Concerto in F

for Piano and Orchestra (A Gershwin Night, EuroArts 2003).
