New York Times: Myra Melford Builds Anew With an All-Star, All-Woman Quintet

The pianist’s latest group fills its recent album “For the Love of Fire and Water” with idiosyncratic life.


“Among other things, Myra Melford is a master in the art of wringing sound out of color and line. An insatiably inventive pianist and composer, she has always found sustenance in modern art — notably the subversive, scribbly works of Cy Twombly.” - Nate Chinen

The Wire

“This feels like the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Melford.” - Stewart Smith


Myra Melford and All-Star Ensemble Craft Music Inspired By the Power and Possibility of Cy Twombly’s Singular Works of Art


"For the Love of Fire & Water, reconfirms [Melford's] talent for whipping up musical excitement without sacrificing complexity and sophistication." - Steve Feeney
