Biography

Soheil Nasseri

Born to Persian parents in Santa Monica, California, Soheil Nasseri began studying piano at the age of five. At 20, he moved to New York to study under late Karl Ulrich Schnabel (1909–2001) and later Jerome Lowenthal, who remains Mr. Nasseri’s mentor today.

Nasser is acclaimed by The New York Times as "a compelling recitalist. Consistently interesting... consistently thoughtful .." and by Berliner Zeitung as "Fantastic! Exquisite! Hats off to him! A real talent." He has performed contemporary works and Beethoven's piano sonatas at some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls: Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Merkin Concert Hall (New York); Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Italy; Kennedy Center in Washington; Berlin’s Philharmonie Kammermusiksaal; Berlin’s Konzerthaus; London’s Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre; Tokyo’s Musashino Center; Florence’s Teatro Comunale.

One of Soheil Nasseri’s foremost interests has been his inner-city public school music education program. Mr. Nasseri has given concerts at more than 60 public schools in the U.S. since 2003. Nasseri's new CD featuring works by the American composer Haskell Small will be released in 2010 by Naxos.
