This season he played in Louisiana, Florida, Mississipi, North Carolina, Washington D.C. and Virginia, presenting eight different solo and chamber music programs.
Called “protean and refined” by the New York Times, Shteinberg recorded for the Israeli ''Voice of Music'' radio station, WQXR, WHMT, the Bavarian Radio and the Yamaha Disklavier; collaborated with New York Philharmonic members and the cellists Han-Na Chang and Natalia Gutman.
Besides solo and chamber music performances, Shteinberg frequently appears with concert-lectures; he also plays harpsichord and period pianos. His interest in new music has led to world premieres and numerous commissions.
A native of Moscow, Dmitri Shteinberg studied at the Gnessin Special School of Music under Anna Kantor, teacher of Evgeny Kissin. His later teachers include Victor Derevianko and Nina Svetlanova, both students of Heinrich Neuhaus. Shteinberg holds a Doctorate from the Manhattan School of Music, and is currently on the piano faculty at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, where he also teaches research and upper-level interdisciplinary arts courses. He is also on faculty at the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival, held every July in Burlington, VT.
This is his fifth appearance on the Historical Piano Concerts series.
