Following his 2017 10-disc recording of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas, pianist Steven Masi turns his talents to two works by Brahms, each one followed by its own companion piece by composers Robert Chumbley and Jonathan Cziner, respectively. Masi’s masterful touch and dynamic style capitalize on the unrivaled emotive power of solo piano, causing it to sing in a voice that is profoundly human. Join this Juilliard School alumnus as he delights listeners with virtuosic artistry and a knowing attention-to-detail.

Steven’s Latest Release

Coming soon
May 2024

American concert pianist Steven Masi explores the depths of Romantic and Impressionist piano literature on BALLADES & OTHER MUSINGS. Emotive, evocative, and deeply stirring, Masi uncovers previously unheard nuances in both Chopin and Debussy, as well as in their contemporary colleague, Sarah Kirkland Snider, whose musical language seamlessly blends with that of her predecessors.

The precision in Masi’s performance is breathtaking, almost Germanic. It lends an extraordinary clarity to works that are, by their inherent nature, wayward and exalted. Still, generous rubato and creativity in pedaling shine in this program, as does Masi’s crystal-clear tone.

Concert Pianist Steven Masi

Concert Pianist Steven Masi is a modern day rarity, an heir to the great tradition of pianists in the line of Wilhelm Kempff, Claudio Arrau, Artur Schnabel and Wilhelm Bachaus who love and excel in the great German and Austrian masterpieces. His recent recordings of the Beethoven Sonatas have been lavishly praised in the press and he is equally at home in the works of Mozart, Schubert and Schumann. He is a pianist of impeccable technique who uses his formidable fingers in the service of the music he plays.
