Dylan Knight Rogers is a composer, pianist, writer, raconteur, and student of philosophy. A Chicago native, he was educated at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland. There, he underwent advanced studies in piano, counterpoint, and composition with distinguished emeritus faculty member Elliott Zuckerman, sustaining a pianistic lineage which names Vera Maurina Press, Ferruccio Busoni, and Franz Liszt among its forebears. On the east coast, Rogers’ performances—whether solo, chamber, or as accompanist—set him apart as an imaginative and concerted steward of the instrument, praised for his special command of pianistic tone and the depth of his interpretations. His compositions have been performed throughout the United States. At this time, Rogers is completing graduate study at the University of Chicago; his Masters thesis will investigate a topic in the aesthetics of Hegel.
