Influenced by the likes of Dustin O’Halloran, Ólafur Arnalds, Max Richter and other neo-classical giants, Meg’s piano compositions are truly a blend of old and new.
Her track Happenstance is a wonderful piece of music, starting as an elegant and classic sounding work, if takes you on a ride of simple pleasure. Her Instrumental style, which blends her piano with the string accompaniment, and becomes as a dance that whisks you away to a time.. a simpler time, a romantic time and it is spender itself.
For an artist so young, Meg Blumberg is well into a mature sense of musical performance, her playing brings you into her world, and that world is filled with joy.
Her style is deliberate and visceral, weaving rich narratives through measured shifts in movement and dynamics. She oftentimes implements a melody-driven discipline in composition, whereby the central theme of a piece takes an unrivaled lead and establishes the character or mood with which to build around.
This is not to say that Meg’s work is minimalist; she isn’t afraid to take a piece somewhere unexpected or furnish it with complementary layers. Rather, she doesn’t let harmony or instrumentation overshadow the main communication of her work, which is to be found in the melody.
