Steven Masi

Recognized as an artist of unusual sensitivity and virtuosity, pianist Steven Masi has concertized extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. He has appeared at the Casals Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Chautauqua Festival, Park City International Festival, Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival, and Music Festival of the Hamptons. His many orchestral appearances have included series with the The Atlanta Symphony, the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, and New Symphony Orchestra of London. In Germany he was an artist member of the Bonn Chamber Music Society.


Masi's 2017 ten-disc recording of the complete Beethoven Sonatas for Piano has been greeted with praise in the press. Fanfare Magazine’s Marc Medwin wrote, “For breathtaking virtuosity serving safe interpretations well inside established lines, we are spoiled for choice, but much rarer is the offering of insight via a unified vision of this extraordinary body of work. This is Masi’s crowning achievement.” He is an exponent of new music and has played the world premieres of Justin Dello Joio’s Concert Etude Momentum, and Jonathan Cziner’s Reflections of Youth, all works that are dedicated to him.


A graduate of the Juilliard School, Masi lives in Leonia NJ with his wife, clarinetist Diana Petrella, and son Aidan. For more, see
