“…an artist brilliantly attuned to her performance material.”— Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine Nov/Dec 2020
As a solo pianist and accompanist, Ms. Mercer has a keen interest in the music of the Second Viennese School but also performs music by living composers and commissions solo and chamber works. She has performed music by such diverse composers as Anthony Braxton, Anton Webern, Bela Bartók, Leos Janacek, Brian Belét, Pablo Furman, Paul Rudy and Sever Tipei, and has commissioned works from Zack Browning, Erik Lund, and Donivan Johnson, among others.
Ms. Mercer’s current discography includes recordings on Capstone, Ravello, Centaur, and New Music Circle, of music by Belét, Mercer, and Rudy. A CD of Anton Webern’s music is now available on Centaur Records. Joshua Kosman of the San Francisco Chronicle described the CD as “sleekly irresistible.”
