Adam Tendler has been called “a virtuoso pianist” by The Village Voice, "an exuberantly expressive pianist" who "vividly displayed his enthusiasm for every phrase" by The Los Angeles Times, a “quietly charismatic...intrepid...outstanding...maverick pianist” by The New Yorker, a "modern-music evangelist" by Time Out New York and a pianist who "has managed to get behind and underneath the notes, living inside the music and making poetic sense of it all," by The Baltimore Sun, which continued, "if they gave medals for musical bravery, dexterity and perseverance, Adam Tendler would earn them all." New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini reported that Tendler played an outdoor performance of John Cage's music "captivatingly," and that "the wondrously subdued sounds silenced many, who listened closely even as street bustle and chirping birds blended in." London critic Frances Wilson described Tendler's memorized performance of Morton Feldman's Palais de Mari as "a concentrated listening experience ... meditative, intense and beautifully poised." And the new music blog, "I care if you listen," described Tendler's recent performance at The Kitchen in New York City as "virtuosic... eerie... agonizing... distressing." 

Tendler has performed solo recitals in all fifty United States, including engagements at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Kitchen, Symphony Space, National Sawdust, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Rothko Chapel, Joyce Theatre, The Maverick Concert Hall, Joe’s Pub, The Fisher Center at Bard College, The Rubin Museum and James Turrell's Skypace in Sarasota Florida, its first musical performer. The music publisher C.F. Peters, recently asked Tendler to perform and speak about the music of J.S. Bach, CPE Bach, Amy Beach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, John Cage, George Crumb, Edvard Grieg, Charles Griffes, Lou Harrison, Alan Hovhaness, Edward MacDowell and Erik Satie for C.F. Peters for their newly-released iPad app, Tido, for their digital music app, Tido. Tendler’s own memoir, 88x50, about his grassroots fifty-state recital tour, was a 2014 Kirkus Indie Book of the Month and Lambda Literary Award Nominee. 2015 saw the release of his premiere recording of Edward T. Cone’s 21 Little Preludes for piano
