Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Fusion is an international recording/performance project featuring some of the latest and most innovative compositions of the 21st century, performed and recorded by concert pianist, Dr. Richard Steinbach. Dr. Steinbach performed his solo debut at Carnegie Hall in June 2015. A champion of contemporary music, he has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Great Britain, South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru), Honduras, Jamaica, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan and 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. Dr. Steinbach is a Professor of Music at Briar Cliff University, Sioux City, Iowa. He holds degrees in piano performance from the University of Colorado, the Eastman School of Music and the University of Iowa. The CD focuses on new international works for piano that integrate elements of classical music, popular music, folk music and jazz.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Mr Steinbach presents a recital of 23 pieces by 15 modern composers who, with one exception, write in a style influenced by modern jazz. The composers are from all over the world, and just three names are likely familiar to you: Chick Corea, Nikolai Kapustin, and Keith Jarrett. The less familiar names include Dimitri Cervo, Claudio Dauelsberg, Ronaldo Miranda, German Perez, Juan Maria Solare, Marlos Nobre, Edmundo Villani-Cortes, Fazil Say, Gwyneth Walker, and Mark Olivieri. The piano sounds great, but up-close, with little dynamic range. I took this for a test drive - literally - and it does travel well: a fine soundtrack for road trips, mostly audible even over road noise. Steinbach is fully at home in the jazz idiom, knows how to swing and how to sing through his fingertips; I'd like to hear some more Kapustin from him. No notes about the composers or their music, but just the pianist's discography and biography.
