The Artistry of… Mark Eisenman
His is an artistry of spirited tenderness and sensitivity, with a bolstering confidence of an influence of some of the greatest of the genre. The greatness is as a strong foundation, solidified by a masterful set of experiences as a student of music. Respect and dedication to his craft guide him, and we the listeners are among the lucky ones to be some of the recipients of the beautiful musical spoils of his focus and spirit.
He shares not only with us the listeners, but also with those he leads in ensembles with a dynamic graciousness and generosity. It is a rich cache of musical experience. That same generosity is a shared experience of those who have been his students and masterclass attendees.
The experience of his artistry is as simple as this: The music Mark Eisenman makes sounds the way he makes, creates, and feels it, because it is genuine. His experience with it is yours. “Everyone is having a good time because that means the music is good.” Those are his own words. Good music, good spirit.
