DEBORAH BRADLEY-KRAMER
Deborah Bradley-Kramer Ph.D, a graduate of New York University and the European Mozart Academy, is Lecturer in Music at Columbia University and was Director of Music Performance at Columbia from 1999-2013. She is founder and pianist of The Moebius Ensemble. Moebius, a group dedicated to championing American music and works of emerging composers in America and beyond, has received Copland and Koussevitzky grants and three grants from the Rockefeller Foundation for a multi-year series of concerts and concerts-lectures in Eastern and Central Europe.
Nominated for a teaching award for excellence, Deborah has taught in Columbia’s Core Curriculum since 1999 and has introduced many new courses: Russian and Soviet Music and Musicians, Piano Repertoire, and Jewish Music to name a few. Dedicated to education and outreach, Ms. Bradley-Kramer co-founded a free community concert series called Overlook Concerts in Riverside Park which routinely draws over 300 audience members to its concerts and showcases musicians from Columbia, Juilliard, and the Manhattan School of Music. In May she will teach a mini-course on American Music at the Taipei National University of The Arts, and give concert-lectures on Jazz influences in Classical Music in Bangkok.
As a pianist, this season Ms, Bradley-Kramer will present a series of piano duo and solo concerts titled “Flights of Fugue,” which pair fugues of Bach with those of Shostakovich and Slonimsky. She will also present premieres of works written for her by Boris Tishchenko, and give concert-lectures on contemporary American and Russian piano music at the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of Music, Conservatory of Music in Prague, American University in Sofia, Bulgaria, Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, Hartt School of Music, New York University, University of Chicago, The Royal Irish Conservatory, and the College Music Society in Boston.
Recently, she formed SPEAKmusic, a collective of Columbia and Juilliard musicians and composers who are dedicated to introducing the world of classical music  - especially that of contemporary young composers - to young listeners. SPEAKmusic has already received numerous invitations to take part in concerts in the United States and abroad, and recently performed at the United Nations. They will inaugurate a new concert series at the 92Y in Fall 2015 featuring world premieres by Columbia’s composers and others.
Ms. Bradley-Kramer’s CD of Jonathan Kramer’s chamber music is forthcoming on Leonarda records in Fall 2015. She also assisted in editing and contributing to Jonathan Kramer’s last book Postmodern Music, Postmodern Listening, which will be published by Bloomsbury Press in August, 2015.
