About the Mentor

“Prepare to be surprised” (Classical Archives) by pianist, arranger, and teacher Eleonor Bindman. Known worldwide for “Bach playing of the highest order” (Pianodao) after releasing recordings of her original transcriptions of J.S. Bach, Bindman combines her passions of teaching and performing to bring great new repertoire to piano lovers of all kinds through her transcriptions, scores, and recordings.

Bindman’s recording of her arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos for Piano Duet with pianist Jenny Lin was declared “breathtaking in its sheer precision and vitality” by Pianist Magazine and quickly became the best-selling album for the label, Grand Piano, in 2018.  She is also the author of other piano transcriptions, including Mussorgsky’s A Night on Bald Mountain and a set of original compositions for children, An American Calendar, both published by Carl Fischer, Inc.

Eleonor has released numerous recordings for solo, duo, and four-hand piano. Her latest recording project features J.S. Bach’s Complete Partitas for Keyboard and will be released in 2021. Ms. Bindman’s experience of working with the complex counterpoint of the Brandenburgs as well as with the expressive possibilities of a single melodic line of the Cello Suites is bound to result in some fresh interpretive insights. She is excited about presenting the diverse body of work which the great composer himself published as his “Opus 1”.

Eleonor Bindman is currently based in New York City, where she is an active recording artist, performer, and teacher.
