"Jason Wirth [spun] a gossamer web of unusual sounds on the piano," writes the The New York Times. A versatile and intrepid performer, Jason draws on his varied interests to bring new perspectives into his music-making. Jason was born in Minnesota, and performed on the piano extensively from a very young age, including appearances with the Moscow Philharmonic and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra as a soloist. His successful recording of Poulenc's The Story of Babar, with film actor Michael Douglas narrating, can be heard on iTunes and Amazon/Audible. "Plundered Hearts", an album of songs by celebrated vocal composer Jorge Martín (Before Night Falls) with mezzo Heather Johnson and baritone Andrew Garland, is also available on iTunes.
In the last year Jason performed with soprano Lynn Spurgat at Carnegie's Zankel, where they will return this November. He was honored to be a guest artist at workshops performances of Santa Fe Opera and Arizona Opera, presenting new works by Paul Ruders and Clint Borzoni. Educated at Mannes and the Yale School of Music, Jason is an expert performer of the operatic repertoire and has a deep love and affinity for art song, cabaret, musical theatre and jazz. His teachers include Alexander Braginsky (University of Minnesota) and Pavlina Dokovska (Mannes).
