Event

Steven Schoenberg
Steven Schoenberg is a dynamic, award-winning composer/pianist whose talents cross into musical theater, classical compositions, film scoring, children's music, and solo improvisational piano performances.

Improvisational Piano

Steven Schoenberg - piano

Steven Schoenberg's acclaimed recordings, Pianoworks, Three Days in May, Steven Schoenberg Live, An Improvisational Journey, and the newly released What's Going On?, are available on CD. After a finger injury stopped his piano improvisational concerts in the 1986, Schoenberg started performing again in the late 1990's and has appeared at concert halls throughout the United States. His recent film scores include the documentaries Monica and David, for HBO, A Class Apart, for the PBS series American Experience; An Act of Conscience, for Showtime; and Farmingville, which opened the 2005 PBS series POV. Farmingville took home the Special Jury Award from the Sundance Film Festival. Schoenberg has scored numerous Emmy Award-winning films for other PBS series including NOVA and Smithsonian World. With his son, Adam Schoenberg, he also scored the independent thriller, Graceland, which premiered at the Tribeca Film festival, and is now available on NETFLIX. For childrens television, he has composed songs for Sesame Street and scored films for ZOOM and the Childrens Television Workshop. He was executive producer and composer for Kid Quest, which garnered two New England Emmy Awards in 2008. Other children's projects include composing music for the award-winning book and CD My Bodyworks, written by his wife Jane Schoenberg.

"Steven Schoenberg's kaleidoscopic piano speaks with a uniquely American voice. His flowing compositions, laced with stride, folk, modern jazz, and impressionistic styles, burst open into full-scale musical dioramas." - Tom Regan, Prairie Public Radio

"Schoenberg's Three Days in May (Quabbin Records) is worth the effort. It's an eloquent, lush, and flowing series of improvisations that are spliced together to form sequential states of mind. He claims that the performances are completely spontaneous, and if that's so, they are within strict melodic and rhythmic frameworks." - DownBeat Magazine

"Schoenberg performs spontaneously improvised works and yet each one has the polish, sophistication, and technical mastery of a complex piece of music." - David Sokol, Music Editor, Advocate Newspapers

"More than a small musical miracle occurred in Amherst College's Buckley Recital Hall last night. Steven Schoenberg held more than 500 people spellbound for 90 minutes with a mix of artistry and understated spirituality. Schoenberg's concert wove together styles as different as classical, popular, and blues into a highly original fabric that is warmly familiar. His versatility and extraordinary musicianship allow him to evoke classical music one minute and the spirit of an off-Broadway passion play the next." - Rob Okun, Daily Hampshire Gazette

"Schoenberg is a bright composer, and his sparkling album Pianoworks is almost 45 minutes of Schoenberg's solo improvisations, most of them from a concert he gave at Amherst College. He's a lyrical player with a gift for delicate interlocking melodies and extended single-note runs high up the keyboard." - Ray Murphy, Boston Globe

"A concert by Steven Schoenberg is like almost nothing else in music. Others can improvise in performance, but very few can improvise over so wide a range of musical forms as those with which Schoenberg is in touch." - John Stiffler, Hampshire Life
