LINCOLN MAYORGA
Pianist


 

LINCOLN MAYORGA            While many concert artists are described as "versatile", Lincoln Mayorga is the personification of the word. Few pianists enjoy concurrent successes in the traditional concert world and in the field of popular music and jazz. Mr. Mayorga is that rare performer who is greatly admired in both.
   The descendent of a pianistic line which began with Beethoven and continued through Carl Czerny, Leschetizky, Arthur Schnabel and his own teacher, Aube Tzerko, Mr. Mayorga balanced his traditional training with the contemporary teachings of Leonard Shure and Gyorgy Sandor.
   His performances include collaborations with such artists as Arnold Steinhardt, Michael Tilson Thomas, Richard Stolzman, Gerard Schwarz, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. During the past several seasons, his concert tours have taken him to Russia, Europe and over 200 cities in North America. In 1988, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra engaged him as soloist in their first concert devoted entirely to American music--from which the Gershwin selections were released as "A Gershwin Celebration," on Sheffield Lab (10044-2)
   Lincoln Mayorga's talents are widely recognized in Hollywood where he was staff pianist for Walt Disney Studios, and performed on the soundtracks of "The Competition," "The Rose," "Harold & Maude," "Splash" and many other films, as well as such television programs as "Highway to Heaven." "Little House on the Prairie" and "Dallas." His composing credits include background scores for the hit series "Fame." In the pop music field, he has accompanied and written arrangements for Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Vikki Carr, Andy Williams, Mel Tormè and Quincy Jones.
   During recent seasons, Mr. Mayorga has appeared in hundreds of recitals across the U.S. as well as in concerto performances, including such diverse repertoire as the Beethoven "Triple" and Bolling's "Suite for Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Piano Trio," of which he gave the West Coast premiere. The latest of his many recording projects include the complete Chopin Preludes and works by Brahms and Prokofiev (Sheffield Lab 10505-2). He has also recently completed recordings of songs by Irving Berlin, featuring Margie Gibson (Sheffield Lab 10036-2) and songs by George Gershwin and Jerome Kern, with soprano Marni Nixon (Reference Recordings). Mr. Mayorga was recently featured as a guest on "Piano Jazz," Marion McPartland's popular radio show on NPR.
