Pianist Richard Steinbach performed his solo debut at New York’s Carnegie Hall in June of 2015
to premiere his latest album, FUSION – New Music for a New Age. He has performed extensively as both soloist and collaborative artist in concerts throughout the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Great Britain, South America (Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, Argentina, Brazil), Honduras, Mexico, Cuba, Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Jamaica, South Korea, Japan and The People’s Republic of China. As the grand prizewinner in the France Piano International Competition, he performed his solo debut recital at the Salle Cortot in Paris in January 1996. Throughout his career, Steinbach has established himself as an extraordinarily versatile artist whose insightful interpretations of contemporary music have been widely acclaimed. The Gazetta del Mezzogiorno (Bari, Italy) stated that Steinbach’s performance exhibited “sonorous expressivity, consummate clarity and insightful sensitivity…”

Currently a Professor of Music at Briar Cliff University, Steinbach holds degrees in piano performance from the University of Colorado, the Eastman School of Music, and the Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Iowa. Post-doctoral work includes study with Dominique Merlet, Noel Lee, Roy Howat, Pascal Devoyon, Dorothy Taubman and John Bloomfield. Steinbach has released four solo recordings on Blue Griffin and Towerhill labels – FUSION: New Music for a New Age, RICHARD STEINBACH LIVE, RHAPSODY IN BLUE and other American Favorites, and CHRISTMAS SPIRIT. Additionally, he has produced a PIANO DUO recording with Howard Helvey, a CD of new American works for voice and piano with soprano Diana Guhin Wooley [THOUGH LOVE BE A DAY, Innova Records] and a recording with flutist, Martha Councell-Vargas titled GRAN DANZON.
