Hazzan David F. Tilman Associate Professor, H.L. Miller Cantorial School, Jewish Theological Seminary of America

"I have known Dave Schlossberg for almost ten years. I have been privileged to conduct the Cantors Assembly of the Delaware Valley Ensemble and the Chorus of the Miller Cantorial School of the Jewish Theological Seminary, both accompanied by Dave Schlossberg.

He is first and foremost a superb pianist, capable of artistic and meticulous performances of difficult and complex printed piano scores. He is always infinitely sensitive to the interpretation of his conductors, responding to tempi and dynamic changes instantly. He is also incredibly skilled at improvising accompaniment parts when presented with lead sheets.

He transposes printed parts flawlessly, enabling choruses and soloists to sing pieces with great comfort and with no tension. Dave writes formal accompaniment parts to music when needed, that are elegant, reflecting the spirit and style of the original composition. His piano and vocal arrangements are always clearly notated using computer notation programs with great competence.

Most of all, Dave is a wonderful soul, always ready to give his maximum to any musical responsibility he undertakes. I am proud to call Dave Schlossberg a colleague and friend, and I look forward to working with him for many years, in good health, G-d willing!"
