California-native Soheil Nasseri has been lauded by The New York Times as “consistently interesting…consistently thoughtful… Filled with character…” and by the Berliner Zeitung as “Fantastic! A real talent. [In Beethoven] We in the audience could not possibly have had more fun.” In addition to extensive critical acclaim for his playing, via television, radio and the internet he has been seen and heard by millions of people. Italy’s La Repubblica referred to him as “the new star of classical piano.”

The New Yorker has noted that Mr. Nasseri is “one of New York’s most prolific recitalists.” Since 2001 he has performed 21 completely different solo recital programs in New York, all without repeating a single piece: at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, and at Merkin Concert Hall. These concerts included 27 premières of contemporary works in addition to 31 of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, a part of Mr.

Nasseri’s pledge to perform all of Beethoven’s works involving piano by the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in 2020.

Mr. Nasseri's program at Music in the Great Hall will conclude at approximately 4:00 P.M. Thanks to a private donation, he will be performing on a rare Steinway 9-foot concert grand on loan from the Steinway Concert Artist Division.
