Steven Masi's 65th Birthday Celebration Concert

Join Thurnauer faculty pianist, Steven Masi, in a special concert celebrating his 65th birthday. Mr. Masi will perform two great piano concertos, Mozart’s Concerto No. 19 in F Major, K. 459 and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58. He will be joined by an all-star orchestra of friends, including Thurnauer colleagues and alumni and members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Orpheus, conducted by Diego Garcia. Reception to follow.

Acclaimed as an artist of unusual sensitivity and virtuosity, pianist Steven Masi has concertized extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia.  In 2017, Masi released his recording of the complete piano sonatas of Beethoven, on the Albany label.  Writing in Fanfare Magazine, Colin Clarke wrote, "Masi hardly seems to feel technical hurdles. It is as if everything is in the service of Beethoven."  As a recitalist and chamber musician he has appeared at the Casals Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Chattauqua Festival, Park City International Festival, Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival, and Music Festival of the Hamptons. He has been guest soloist with The Atlanta Symphony, American Symphony, and New Symphony Orchestra of London. In Germany he was an artist member of the Bonn Chamber Music Society and recorded extensively for the Southwest German Radio and Aulos Records. He has toured the United States with the Bonn Woodwind Quintet, and as a member of the Odyssey Chamber Players and Leonore Trio.  A graduate of the Juilliard School, Mr. Masi lives in Leonia, New Jersey with his wife, clarinetist Diana Petrella and son Aidan.
