Bio at-a-glance:


Steven Mayer Born in New York City, pianist Steven Mayer has studied at three of the country’s major conservatories: Juilliard, Peabody, and the Manhattan School of Music. He continues to serve on the faculty of the International Keyboard Institute and Festival at the Mannes College of Music. He also teaches at the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver. Mayer records with Naxos and is perhaps best known for being a Franz Liszt specialist and for his jazz improvisations.


In 1992, he won the Grand Prix du Disque Liszt for the world premiere recording of Liszt’s Concerto Opus Posthumous and De Profundis with the London Symphony Orchestra. He went on to perform those works with other European orchestras. Performing regularly in chamber music festivals, Mayer tours in Europe, Latin America, and the United States.
